Chrysler Group to invest of $114 million in its Trenton North engine plant

Article by Christian A., on June 15, 2011

Industry observers are expecting Chrysler Group to soon reveal its plans to invest $114 million in its Trenton North engine plant located near Detroit.

This will lead to the creation of about 270 jobs at the facility, which was shut down last May, according to Gerald Brown, the mayor of Trenton, Mich. He added that Chrysler will use 400,000 square feet of the plant, which spans 2 million square feet.

Brown said that Chrysler has a “desire to do things at this plant” and make use of the space.

It’s likely that Chrysler will build components for the Pentastar V-6 engine, which is manufactured at its Trenton South plant on the same site as the Trenton North plant. A Chrysler spokeswoman would only say that the announcement will be made "sometime very soon."

 During a special meeting last Monday, the Trenton City Council showed its support for the investment as it unanimously approved a 50% tax abatement for Chrysler for 12 years.

At this meeting, Brian Glowiak, Chrysler's director of state and local government affairs, said that this project is “very important” and so it is being fast-tracked. Brown said that the plant will start to be worked on this year and that parts production will start in 2012.

Brown said that since April, the city has met with Chrysler several times to talk about the Trenton North plant. Brown believes that the announcement will be made this week.
