GM to Invest More Than $30 Million in Pontiac Stamping

General Motors today announced more than $30 million of investment in its Pontiac Stamping Plant earmarked for tooling and equipment to enhance the plant’s manufacturing capabilities.

GM continues to invest in our manufacturing operations to ensure we have the technology and equipment we need to build whatever our vehicle designers develop,” said Gerald Johnson, GM manufacturing manager.

“Orion Assembly is the primary customer for Pontiac Stamping and we know how important the launch of the Chevrolet Sonic and Buick Verano are to our customers.”

The investments will cover upgrading three conventional press lines already operating at the plant and the installation of two additional presses that are coming to Pontiac Stamping as part of GM’s stamping consolidation project. These actions will position Pontiac Stamping as a regional center supporting many plants.

“This investment is the result of the employee’s commitment to quality and how they work as a team to support their customers,” said GM Pontiac Stamping Plant Manager Alicia Boler-Davis.

Pontiac Stamping opened in 1932 and provides parts to support several GM products including the Chevrolet Sonic and the Buick Verano, both launching later this year.

“The men and women of UAW Local 653 know that producing high-quality parts is essential to meet the needs of our customers,” said UAW Local 653 Chairman Norm Greenfield. “We take a lot of pride in our work and this investment is important to the future of this plant.”

Local officials agreed the investment would have a positive impact on the community.

Oakland Country Executive L. Brooks Patterson said, “After a few challenging years, it is great to see GM investing in our community. It’s a sign that the auto industry is back.”

“This is welcomed news for our community because it retains jobs and we look forward to partnering with GM for years to come,” added Pontiac Mayor Leon Jukowski.

The investment will retain 290 hourly and salaried jobs at Pontiac Stamping.

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
