How Does a 60 Year Old Texas Assembly Plant Turn Sheet Steel Into 1000 Vehicles A Day? With 18-Hundred Tons Of Pressure And A Brand New Stamping Facility!
While many people complain that too much manufacturing has 'left the country' and that 'we don't build anything anymore' this plant in Texas is an example where that isn't the case. In fact, this plant is where all of General Motors' full-size SUV's are assembled.
Currently undergoing a half-billion dollar renovation and having added hundreds of jobs in the last few years, the new facility will build the next generation of Tahoes, Suburbans, Yukons and Escalades. Since 2009, GM has announced U.S. facility investment of nearly $9 billion.
In this package your viewers will see how sheet metal is loaded into the draw press, stretched, formed, trimmed and pierced to help build a stronger safer vehicle.
