ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – General Motors is investing more than $500 million to improve its Arlington assembly plant, which means more jobs are on the way. GM is dedicating $200 million to a stamping facility that will press out components of the company’s upcoming line of new full-size SUVs, the Chevrolet Tahoe & Suburban, GMC Yukon & Cadillac Escalade.
The last shipment of massive equipment for the stamping plant arrived Friday. A 19-axle hauler delivered a large component of the plant’s final stamping press; the last of four massive shipments to complete GM Arlington’s new, 400-ton stamping presses.
The shipment started with a 550-mile trek from the Port of Houston through several communities in the sate. UAW-GM stamping plant employees whose jobs rely on the equipment, according to GM Arlington spokesperson Donna McLallen, happily greeted the drivers of the hauler.
The plant is located at 2525 East Abram Street in Arlington, TX.
