Comments: GM Arlington’s new Stamping Facility represented a $200 million community investment and 180 jobs. The General Motors Assembly plant in Arlington, Texas first began production in 1954, building the Pontiac Chieftain. The new stamping facility will produce large metal parts, such as doors, hoods and side panels, for the next generation of the full-size SUVs. The Arlington plant is the lone source for Chevrolet Tahoes, Suburbans, GMC Yukons and Cadillac Escalades sold globally. UAW-GM employees in Arlington produce more than 1,100 vehicles daily.
