GM Invests In St. Catherines & Bulks Up Oshawa For Camaro Convertible

General Motors of Canada Limited




Apr 27, 2010 10:06
ETGeneral Motors of Canada Limited:

Next Generation Small Block Engine Production Confirmed for St. Catharines Powertrain

- $235 million investment secures up to 400 jobs
- Plant to produce next generation of highly fuel-efficient small block engines


ST. CATHARINES, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 27, 2010) - GM Canada today announced a $235 million investment in its St. Catharines Powertrain facility to build GM's next generation of highly fuel-efficient engines, securing up to 400 jobs at the plant.

"This marks another positive step forward in our strategy to deliver powertrain technologies that improve fuel-efficiency while meeting the needs of our customers," said Kevin Williams, president, GM Canada. "The new engine allocation at St. Catharines is the latest in a series of investments in our Canadian facilities – great news for employees, the CAW, dealers, suppliers and the communities affected."

The next generation small block engine family will deliver impressive fuel efficiency through the use of direct injection and an all-new advanced combustion system design. The new engine family will rely exclusively on aluminum engine blocks, which are lighter and contribute to the improved fuel efficiency. In addition to being E85 ethanol capable, these engines are being designed with the capability to meet increasingly stringent criteria emissions standards expected throughout this decade.

Other recent investment announcements at Canadian facilities include:

Oshawa Assembly:
Addition of a third shift in October to support production of the Chevrolet Equinox resulting in the recall of 600 employees.
Addition of second shift in Q4 this year on the flexible manufacturing line to support Buick Regal and Chevrolet Camaro convertible production resulting in the recall of some 700 employees.
CAMI Automotive:
The recent addition of a 3rd shift resulting in the recall of 350 employees.
A $96 million capacity expansion investment currently underway resulting in the recall of 230 employees and the hiring of approximately 70 new employees.
General Motors of Canada (GMCL) is headquartered in Oshawa, Ontario and employs 9,000 people nationwide. GM of Canada manufactures vehicles and powertrains, and markets the full range of Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles and related services through the largest automotive dealer network in the country.

Hard to tell. The pre-production for the 2010 Camaro's official began in October 2008 and 'real' production began in March 2009. There won't be as many glitches to sort out with the convertible, but they won't have as much time to troubleshoot either, given that they will be building the 2011 Camaros (I'm guessing they will set aside 1 day a week for convertible pre-production, but I have no clue how this sort of thing works)

The 'pony wars' coming back now is the best thing to happen to the American car companies in a very long time...

And, it came at the same time that Toyota seems to be 'going down in flames', with all their deceipt and lies and recalls...
