The Bowling Green, Kentucky assembly, home of the Corvette, has received another lump sum to ensure the long-running nameplate stays world class.
General Motors today announced $290 million of investment being funneled to the Bowling Green assembly for new assembly technologies and processes in an effort to enhance GM’s manufacturing flexibility.
“We are making technology investments that will continue to improve our manufacturing processes and ultimately the quality of our vehicles,” said North American Manufacturing Manager Arvin Jones. “We are putting Corvette customers first by building upon our world-class manufacturing process.”
The $290 million comes atop a $439 million investment into Bowling Green for retooling and a new paint shop on the premises and $44 million for the Corvette Performance Build Center, bringing recent investment well over half a million dollars.
Facility upgrades and improvements are planned to begin construction this summer.
