General Motors is planning on expanding its Fort Wayne Campus with an investment of $1.2 billion. The campus, that produces full size pickup trucks, already employees 3,800 people and has plans to expand it’s manufacturing line.
The new construction will expand the assembly plant’s existing 3.3 million-square-foot campus. It is expected to total about 1.5 million square feet of new space and will include a new pre-treatment facility and expanded body shop. Additionally, the enhancements will expand the plant’s general assembly capabilities.
This will be a huge boom to the construction industry based out of Fort Wayne. Not only will there be the expansion of GM, but to accommodate that INDOT will be allocating $4.6 million for infrastructure assistance.
“The expansion of the Fort Wayne General Motors facility is a tremendous commitment because it not only cements GM’s future in the Allen County community, but it also ensures that we will continue to employ Northeast Indiana residents for years to come,” said Allen County Commissioner Nelson Peters.
