General Motors invests US$ 14-million for new press at Parma Metal Center

General Motors will invest US$ 14-million at the Parma Metal Center in Northeast Ohio to support the installation of a progressive press that can eventually be used for both die tryout and regular parts production.

Startup is scheduled for late this year or early 2015. The
new press will help Parma enhance product quality and productivity in support of its many customers across North America.

"People are the foundation of our business. We have a great team, and we all look forward to this opportunity to again prove that we are one team, one goal and world class as we serve the customers who purchase our cars, trucks and crossovers," said Parma Plant Manager Al McLaughlin.

The GM Parma Metal Center is emerging as one of GM's premier metal stamping and assembly operations in North America. Since 2009, GM has invested about US$ 120-million for improvements and upgrades at the 2.3-million-sq ft facility.

Parma supports vehicle builds at 13 GM assembly plants in North America and other customers, supplying 67-million parts last year.

"On behalf of the shop committee and the membership, we appreciate the opportunity and the confidence that the UAW-GM joint leadership team has in us for building a brighter future at Parma," said UAW Local 1005 Shop Chairman Bruno Razov.
