750 New Jobs at Wentzville GM Plant

General Motors has announced that it will add a third shift to its Wentzville assembly plant. The workers will build Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickups and Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans.

GM says that the new Colorado has received nearly 30,000 dealer orders—a very high rate for early orders.

The 750 third-shift positions add to the 1,315 jobs that GM committed to with the launch of the new pickups and the addition of a third stamping press at Wentzville—investments that totaled
$513 million.

The Wentzville assembly plant currently employs approximately 2,600 hourly and salaried workers and operates two production shifts. The third shift is expected to
begin in early 2015.
