Chrysler Moving From Mexico To Michigan, Toyota Building in Alabama

Post by LeJizzOfMatoub » Sat Jan 13, 2018 2:32 am

DETROIT — Fiat Chrysler is moving production of heavy-duty trucks from Mexico to Michigan and paying bonuses to U.S. workers in response to the passage of U.S. tax reform late last year.

The automaker will invest $1 billion in its Warren Truck Assembly Plant to make the Ram Heavy Duty Truck starting in 2020. That truck is currently made in Saltillo, Mexico, where workers will continue to make commercial vehicles.

FCA says the Warren plant will add 2,500 new jobs.

The company also plans to pay $2,000 bonuses this spring to about 60,000 hourly and salaried U.S. employees. Senior executives won’t get the bonus.

FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne says the company should adjust its manufacturing footprint to reflect “improvement in the U.S. business environment.” He says employees should also share in the tax savings. (read more)
Toyota Motor Corp (TM) and Mazda Motor Corp announced on Wednesday they will build a $1.6 billion joint assembly plant in Alabama that will employ up to 4,000 workers, a boost for President Donald Trump, who wants automakers to expand U.S. production.

Toyota President Akio Toyoda and Mazda President and Chief Executive Officer Masamichi Kogai joined Alabama Governor Kay Ivey in Montgomery at an event to announce the decision.

“Welcome to sweet home Alabama,” Ivey said to the two executives, after saying that the anticipated 4,000 workers at the plant to be built in Huntsville would earn an average of $50,000 a year.

The plant will produce 300,000 vehicles a year and should open on a 2,500-acre former cotton field in 2021, about 14 miles from Toyota’s engine plant in Huntsville. (link)
Thanks Obama. Can't say good things about Trump before the year 2024.

GM announced it was moving production of its best-selling vehicle, the Cadillac SRX, from Mexico to this plant in Tennessee. Today 3,000 people work on this 6.9 million square-foot campus, and more are being hired.

GM is one of the hundreds of companies, big and small, that have moved manufacturing back to the United States from overseas.

Yep, you wanna buy one? The good old american excellence is back.

The Cadillac SRX is a thoroughly progressive crossover whose dynamic style is matched only by its limitless flexibility. Take control and master the road ahead.

Image
  • AN ELEVATED ENVIRONMENT:
  • GENUINE STYLE:. Cadillac designers have fitted the crafted cabin with authentic materials like natural woods, leather appointments and suedes and punctuated them with tasteful aluminums and carbon fiber accents for a rich, yet understated feel
  • EXPANSIVE COMFORTS: Comfort can be found in every inch of this spacious cabin. Every seat benefits from generous front and rear legroom. The standard leather-wrapped steering wheel offers power tilt, telescoping and available heating functions to enhance your travels
  • SEVERAL STEPS AHEAD:
    Adaptive Remote Start lets you start the engine using your key fob or the MyCadillac app2—it even preconditions the cabin based on outside temperatures. And when you’re ready to get in, Keyless Access senses the proximity of your key fob to automatically unlock or lock the doors.
  • SIGNATURE LIGHTING:
    A visionary lighting system frames its sharp exterior and distinguishes your presence both day and night. Available LED Cornering lamps cast light into curves as you take them, while available LED Intellibeam headlamps automatically switch between high and low beams as vehicles approach you.
  • 20-INCH WHEELS:
    High strength and high style. Available 20-inch Aluminum Wheels with Ultrabright Machined Finish and Midnight Silver Accents let you stand apart on any road.
  • ILLUMINATING DOOR HANDLES:
    Part beauty, part function. The available Illuminating Door Handles on the XT5 light when the doors are unlocked, providing a welcome glow in low-light conditions.
And many more features: http://www.cadillac.com/crossovers-suvs ... sover.html

Yes.

That's why it was good of Obama to bring those jobs back to the US in 2015.
