BEDFORD, Ind.—General Motors has announced it will invest US$127.4 million in powertrain and structural components to support the production of new aluminum engine blocks and components at its Bedford Casting Operations plant in Indiana.
The investment will create approximately 127 jobs, adding to the 700 employees who already work at the plant, which produces components used in Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles.
“This investment in the future recognizes the excellent workforce at Bedford Casting Operations” the facility’s plant manager, Lamar Rucker, said. “It also demonstrates GM’s collaboration with our UAW and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers partners, which reflects how we continue to bring new powertrain solutions to our customers.”
