ENGINES: Chrysler Mulls Investment at Detroit Mack Avenue Plant
Tuesday, July 24th, 2012
Chrysler Group LLC is reported to be considering an investment of nearly $200 million at its Mack Avenue I Engine Plant to boost production of its Pentastar engine, this according to The Detroit News.
The newspaper said the move would more than double the number of employees at the plant, adding as many as 250 jobs. The news comes just weeks after Chrysler announced it would close its Mack Avenue II plant but assured that displaced workers would be employed at other Chrysler facilities. Mack Avenue I is a likely destination for at least some of those workers.
Company spokesperson Jodi Tinson told the newspaper that Chrysler "will be working with the City of Detroit and the State of Michigan regarding potential economic development incentives to assist us in making the business case for the investment."
