Toledo Assembly Complex marks production of one-millionth Jeep Wrangler JK

The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most iconic vehicles in the world and the one-millionth JK model rolled-off the assembly line at Chrysler Group's Toledo (Ohio) Assembly Complex. Chrysler executives, plant employees, UAW representatives
and supplier partners gathered at the end of the line to mark the occasion.

Mauro Pino, Chrysler Group's Vice-President of Vehicle Assembly Operations, and Dan Henneman, Jeep Unit Chairman of UAW Local 12, drove the black 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition, bound for a customer in Sarasota, Fla., off the final line to the applause of employees.

"Every Jeep Wrangler sold to customers around the world is born in Toledo, Ohio," said Pino. "Since this facility opened eight years ago, the Toledo workforce has built every one of those million vehicles with pride, passion and a focus on quality. We all look forward to building the next million."

"More than 600 UAW-represented workers at the Wrangler assembly plant come to work every day with a dedication unmatched in the industry," said Zach Leroux, Plant Manager - Toledo Assembly Complex, Chrysler Group. "We all understand that we are the keepers of the Jeep legacy and we take that role very seriously. The entire team is humbled to be part of this milestone moment."
