GMC Manufactures One-Million Vehicles in Michigan
One of GM's youngest plants has quite a bit to celebrate as its employees recently off-loaded a Crystal Red Tintcoat GMC Acadia Denali off of the assembly line. While this might not seem like such an impressive feat at a glance, we here at Roper Buick GMC assure you that there is something quite special about the crossover SUV.
More specifically, while the vehicle is one of 300,000 that are produced at the plant each year, it happened to be the one-millionth vehicle to pass the final inspection. What makes this feat even more impressive is the fact that production at the plant only began in 2006. Since, then the LEED-certified factory has managed to continue to meet its production capacity each year, proving that the public's demand for GMC models like it are as hot as ever.
"This milestone shows the dedication of our team members to provide the highest-quality crossovers," explains Plant Manager, Scott Whybrew "Our team has established a strong foundation by continually improving our plant operations in order to exceed the expectations of our customers."1
Workers currently cover three shifts to make the 300,000 vehicle per year figure a reality. And, this doesn't seem to be a problem for anyone, including the employees. In fact, those employees are among the most regarded asset of the plant. "Producing the millionth vehicle would not be possible without the great people we have here," says Union chairman, Rick Martinez. "Our employees are highly trained, and we couldn't create the models with such high quality without our people."2
Other hot GMC models currently include models like the GMC Yukon and the GMC Sierra 2500HD. If you'd like to learn more about these or any other new GMC models, then feel free to contact us online or by phone at (888) 835-8249 today.
