General Motors to add third shift, 750 jobs at Wentzville Assembly

General Motors (GM) will add a third shift at its Wentzville Assembly plant, creating an estimated 750 new jobs, to build the all-new Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon mid-size pickups and Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans.

Dealers have ordered nearly
30,000 Colorados, which is very high for early orders. With the mid-size trucks, Chevrolet and GMC offer the broadest truck portfolio in the business. No other manufacturer is positioned to offer all truck customers the right truck to meet their varied needs.

The 750 third shift positions are in addition to the 1,315 new jobs at Wentzville that GM committed to with the launch of the new pickups and the addition of a third stamping press - two major investments totaling US$ 513-million.

Wentzville's third shift is the latest job-creating action by GM. Wentzville Assembly currently employs approximately 2,600 hourly and salaried workers and operates two production shifts. The third shift is expected to begin in early 2015.
