Fort Wayne Plant Up and Running
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a difficult and stressful time for all of us. Everything from our normal routine to the global supply lines has seemingly been disrupted. Lately, semiconductor chips have been experiencing a nationwide shortage. In a refreshing burst of good news and a sign of things to come, the GM Fort Wayne Assembly Plant in Indiana has reopened after a two-week hiatus!
Due to supply constraints, the plant was briefly shutdown. A staple of Chevy culture and manufacturing, closing the Fort Wayne plant was a tough decision and a sad situation for all. However, thanks to new supply of semiconductors, things are looking up. The Fort Wayne plant is once again operational, rolling pickups off the production line once again!
Assembled in the USA
Thanks to Fort Wayne’s reopening, over 3,000 workers are once again back to work. They are integral to building the Chevy products that we all know and love. Chevy takes great pride in building and maintaining local factories. GM positively contributing to economies, large and small, across the United States. Employing over 150,000 employees worldwide and one of the largest employers in the United States, Chevy does not take its mantra “Assembled in the USA” lightly. Chevy has been and will continue to be a positive economic force as the nation recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rolling Down the Line
The Fort Wayne plant primarily builds Chevy’s beloved pickup trucks, including the Chevy Silverado 1500 and the GMC Sierra 1500. As electronic chips become more and more accessible, Chevy will be able to include features on these trucks that were briefly discontinued in order to maintain supply of the trucks. Heated seats, rear park assist, backup cameras, and more were temporarily halted and will be familiar additions to the already impressive Chevy pickups.
