GM Expands Chevy Crossover Production

Recently, General Motors has been dealing with a welcome problem: how to respond to the consumer demand for the Chevrolet Equinox crossover. Dealers have been airing concerns in recent months that they have been dealing with shortages caused by steady interest in the car. Automotive News reports that GM is responding to these concerns by adding a third shift to production at its plant in Oshawa, Canada.

The Equinox is currently built in GM’s CAMI plant in Ingersoll. The company had originally announced plans to expand that plant; the new announcement states that body assemblies will now be shipped to Oshawa for final painting and assembly.chong qi zhang peng

The third shift in Oshawa is scheduled to start in October, and will restore jobs for 600 employees who had previously been laid off. In addition, the expansion of the CAMI plant will not only restore all laid off jobs but require hiring an additional 70 employees by October.
