GM adds jobs at Warren Transmission plant

FREE PRESS BUSINESS WRITER

General Motors announced today that it’s adding more than 100 jobs at the Warren Transmission plant as part of the automaker’s efforts to increase production of hot-selling vehicles, such as the Chevrolet Equinox.

The factory, which employs about 780 people, makes transmissions for Equinox, Chevy Traverse, Malibu, Buick LaCrosse and other vehicles.

Sales of the Equinox during the first three months of the year are up 130% compared to the same period last year. LaCrosse sales are up 197%.

GM last month announced plans to increase production of the Equinox by doing final assembly at a second Canadian plant, which will increase demand for parts for the vehicle.

“Increased market demand for our great vehicles is driving expansion of our production operations. Additional jobs will allow us to grow the business, while meeting increasing customer demand for our hot products,” Dave Tatman, Warren plant manager, said in a statement.

The new jobs will be filled with laid-off workers from other regional plants, Kevin Nadrowski, a GM spokesman, said. Many are starting work today, he added.
