Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to Invest $5 Billion + in U.S. Auto Plants
ELIZABETH CITY, NC – Just announced – Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (F.C.A) will invest over $5 billion into U.S. auto plants across the country. During recent UAW (United Auto Workers) talks in Detroit, F.C.A CEO Sergio Marchionne spoke to the media and confirmed a $5.3 billion investment; a sure surprise to all of those in attendance.
The automotive company's massive investment will help secure thousands of UAW jobs in a variety of auto plants. The investment breaks down to $3.4 billion to be invested into assembly plants, $1.5 billion at engine and transmission plants, $315 million at stamping plants, and $34 million at Mopar parts distribution plants.
Throughout the UAW conversations, it also came to light that the Jeep brand does in fact have plans to move forward with a 2018 release of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer which will likely be produced in Warren, Mich. according to the Detroit Free Press.
It will be interesting to see how the UAW responds to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles investing over $5 billion into U.S auto plants. It's definitely a positive announcement for the auto industry, and it's expected that autoworkers will soon be fully briefed about the economic terms of this new investment deal.
