Just before General Motors entered bankruptcy, it received $17 million in FastTrack job training incentive grants from the State of Tennessee that was meant to preserve 4,000 jobs within the Spring Hill assembly plant. Spring Hill began building the Chevrolet Traverse just before the company shuttered the plant in 2009 as a result of the company’s bankruptcy.
Since then, Spring Hill has turned into strictly a Powertrain facility, with no more than roughly 1,200 employees building engines and components, while the Traverse moved into Lansing’s Delta Township assembly plant next to the GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave. Meanwhile, the Spring Hill main assembly line remains on “standby”.
