The plant opened in 1941 and currently employs about 1200 workers. Currently the factory turns out 6T70/6T75 Hydra-Matic transmissions, which put the power to the ground in such vehicles as the Buick Enclave, Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Traverse, Chevrolet Equinox, Chevrolet Impala and Chevrolet Malibu, GMC Acadia, and GMC Terrain.
The General Motors Foundation is honoring the event in a very generous fashion. The foundation, which in on-track to give more than $1.5 million to charitable organizations in communities that support GM plants, is giving $70,000 to a number of Warren-area non-profits and community service projects.
Wolverine Auto Finance, which serves the Warren area, authored a recent featured post on their blog outlining this historic event, which interested parties can read here: http://www.wolverineautofinance.com/
One company spokesperson elaborated on the topic: "As a company in the automotive space that also serves the community of Warren, we wanted to express our support and gratitude both to the workers who have contributed so much to the industry, as well as to GM for being so continually supportive of the communities in which its plants reside."
