GM Commits $491M to Update Marion Stamping Plant

Sept. 15, 2022
A project starting later this year will include new press lines and other updates, and a building addition, in preparation for EV and other new GM model assembly.

General Motors announced plans for a $491-million capital investment at the Marion, Ind., metal stamping operation, to process steel and aluminum panels for future GM models, including electric vehicles. The project – which includes two new press lines, complete press and die updates, some renovations to existing facilities, as well as a roughly 6,000-sq.ft. building addition – will begin later this year.

“While this investment prepares the facility for our all-electric future, it’s really an investment in our talented Marion team and will keep the plant working for many years to come,” stated GM EVP Gerald Johnson. “This investment is another example of the company bringing everyone along and investing in the people who make manufacturing a competitive advantage for GM.”

With over 750 staff and production workers, GM’s Marion Metal Center produces sheet metal parts that are supplied to multiple GM assembly plants, Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles.
