GM Invests $131 Million in Corvette Manufacturing Plant

GM creates more jobs

GM has announced that it has invested $131 million in the Bowling Green plant in Kentucky where the world-class sports car, the Chevrolet Corvette is constructed. The investment in the plant is to support the next generation Corvette and will add about 250 jobs to the plant. GM notes that with the most recent investment it has now invested $3.4 billion in the US and made about 9000 jobs for workers.

The plant at Bowling Green is set to continue building the Corvette for the next two years including the 2012 Corvette set to start construction this summer. This single plant makes all of the Corvette versions including the Coupe, Convertible, Grand Sport, Z06, and ZR1. The plant has nearly 400 workers on a single shift working 10-hour days Monday through Thursday.

The plant also hosts tourists that come from all over to see where all Corvettes are born. The visitors are able to get a glimpse of the manufacturing process and watch the car get built before taking delivery at the National Corvette museum.

My Take: It’s good to see Chevrolet continuing investment in a sports car like the Corvette.
