Ram Truck Manufacturing Coming Home to MI


Fiat Chrsyler Automobiles said Thursday it was set to invest over one billion dollars in its plant at Warren in MI, where it will move from Mexico the production of the next generation of Ram Heavy Duty pickups.

FCA said that the move will create 2,500 new jobs at the plant, on top of 2,000 new jobs the company announced in January previous year as it tools up to build more pickups and sport utility vehicles in US plants.

Also, the company said that it will make a bonus payment of $2,000 to approximately 60,000 FCA hourly and salaried employees in the US, excluding senior leadership.

The move is possible because FCA made the prior decision to make the new big Jeep SUVs on the Ram body-on-frame platform.

Fiat Chrysler will be moving the production of its Ram heavy-duty truck from Mexico to MI and giving its workforce a substantial bonus due to tax reform. FCA said it does not plan to shutter the Mexico plant but hasn't said what plans it may have for the facility. "I know I gave you a hard time, but you have to build them here".
