Chevrolet Cruze Lordstown Ohio

GM has confirmed that it will be investing $220 million for tooling and equipment to build the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze in two northeast Ohio plants. The move is expected to retain more than 5,000 jobs at facilities in Lordstown and Parma.

“Thanks to northeast Ohio’s supportive business climate, we’re able to build on a great foundation and steer the Chevrolet Cruze into the next generation.”  GM Manufacturing Manager Arvin Jones said. “A special thanks goes to Governor John Kasich and his team at Jobs Ohio for their strong leadership and advocacy for GM and our employees.”

Since production of the Chevrolet Cruze started in September 2010, the Lordstown plant, with help from the metal center in the Cleveland suburb of Parma, has built more than 500,000 units of the compact sedan.

More than 1.6 million Cruzes have been built globally since 2009.
