Is there any word on anything ever coming back to Dayton Ohio I.E. (General Motors ) would love to see this city get a shot in the arm the economy has gotten so bad here…May 14, 2013 at 1:13 pm #41507
$16 billion in North America by 2016 my fingers are crossed hoping something comes back to Dayton Ohio or within 50 milesMay 15, 2013 at 8:28 am #41545

@depressedindaytonohio I don’t see GM restarting any idled plants or opening new ones at this point in time. As far as I know, most (if not all) of the $16 billion will go towards improving or expanding existing facilities.
That said, there is the Lordstown, Ohio facility that makes the Cruze. Something tells me that it will be expanded to produce variants of the all-new 2015 Chevy Cruze.May 15, 2013 at 11:51 am #41555

There has been talk of a couple plants that may come back at some point but very few and Dayton was never in the cards.
The Lordstown deal has rumored for several years that the Buick would go in there with the Verano at some point but it has not happened.
The last time I was there the Cruze line was on a new line in the plant and the old Cobalt line space was available but as of this point nothing is happening.
GM could bring in a totally different product with this space on a second line and build a different platform vs. the new Cruze platform. The UAW there has learned their lesson and found if they cooperate they can be rewarded well with more work. So far they are doing so. At times in the past this was not true.
This is still the largest plant GM has in the US under roof. They have a lot of space they could add too if needed but still no word.May 16, 2013 at 1:24 pm #41646
