Ultium Cells Plant In Spring Hill Celebrates Completion Of Steel Structure18
The final steel beam of the new Ultium Cells battery plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee was recently put in place, marking the completion of the new facility’s steel structure.
“This is a significant milestone for the Ultium Cells team and our construction trade partners as we continue to make strides safely and at an unprecedented pace,” said plant director of Ultium Cells Spring Hill, Chris Desautels. “This is a fundamental mark in our journey as Ultium Cells, and I look forward to more foundational moments as we begin to build an inclusive and engaged workforce.”
The new Ultium Cells battery plant in Spring Hill is just one part of the joint venture between GM and LG Energy Solution, and will build towards the mass-production of Ultium battery cells for use in future all-electric GM vehicles. The Spring Hill facility represents an investment of $2.3 billion between GM and LGES.
The facility’s steel structure was completed in just 6 months, with 550,000 construction build hours poured into its creation. When the entire facility is completed, it will span some 2.8 million square feet. Employee hiring for the Ultium Cells plant is now underway, and expected to create more than 1,300 jobs in the Spring Hill area. Ultium Cells is now hiring key positions for the setup and launch of full-scale battery cell manufacturing, with 50 new launch team members set to join by the end of the year.
The new Ultium Cells plant in Spring Hill will begin full-scale production by Q4 of the 2023 calendar year. Looking ahead, the Spring Hill facility will be just one of several new Ultium battery production plants planned for operation in the U.S., with the Ultium Cells plant in Warren, Ohio set to begin production in August, and the Ultium Cells plant in Lansing, Michigan set to begin production in Q3 of 2024.

Does this mean i can get batteries for my flashlight now. It looks like a super Woollies world. How we can beg China for more of our metals.
ICE’s are never going away. Too many people want them and an all EV country is a pipe dream until a lot more power generation comes online, which takes a long time.
GM has locked up long-term contracts for the raw materials and batteries needed to sell 1 million EVs in the U.S. in 2025 and is looking for upside opportunities to get even more. It says those EVs will generate $50 billion in revenue by 2025, and $90 billion by 2030.
The Chevrolet Equinox EV will debut this fall with a $30,000 MSRP, which already accounts for higher raw material and battery costs. That’s also ten grand cheaper than comparable from competitors. Autoline
GM leads the ICE to EV revolution in North America today.
Whatever, as soon as the GOP takes over, we can restart our energy industry and bring fuel prices back down to Trump levels. Then nobody wants the EV’s that GM has committed to. But hey, that’s what happens when you don’t listen to your customers!
People should be prosecuted for trying to destroy our energy industry. Our economy will take years to recover, even after the GOP takes over and restarts it.
What the heck are you talking about? Oil production in the US is about to get back to record highs after the orange man crushed it by ignoring the virus.
“US oil output is expected to return to a near record high averaging 13 million barrels daily by next year, the Energy Information Administration forecast as oil drillers in the country suggested they may produce more after crude prices hit 14-year highs above $130 a barrel.
“We forecast that production will rise to average 12.0 million b/d in 2022 and then to record high production on an annual-average basis of 13.0 million b/d in 2023,” the EIA said in its monthly report on the US Short-Term Energy Outlook on Tuesday.”
Lol, “crushed it by ignoring the virus”? How does that make any sense? Trump brought oil an fuel prices to decade lows by removing regulatory roadblocks and actually encouraging the industry! I really enjoyed that $1.88 gas! Be real!
That’s good news and it gets even better after Brandon’s executive orders get repealed in 2024!
I’m suggesting the collapse of General Motors & the current British government will begin to
occur simultaneously. This will commence when Prince Charles ascends the throne following the demise of his mother, QE 2. & Mary Barra’s prediction of no more GM ice
vehicles beyond 2035.
Yes ,we need to get Trump back and get the country back on track. You people need to ignore his tweets and let him straighten out this total mess Biden and the rest of his idiots have gotten us all into. And don’t get me started on the disaster at our border.
