GM: $69M investment and 2,500 jobs at Detroit-Hamtramck to produce Chevy Impala, Malibu #in

General Motors Co. will add two shifts and about 2,500 hourly and salaried workers to its Detroit-Hamtrack plant to build the Chevrolet Malibu and next-generation Impala, officials say.

This morning, the Detroit automaker officially made the announcement as part of its plan to create or retain about 4,000 jobs and invest $2 billion in 17 manufacturing facilities in eight states.

GM says it will invest $69 million into retooling for the new production of the Impala, which joins the extended-range electric Chevrolet Volt and the upcoming Chevrolet Malibu at the facility.

The jobs will be filled by laid-off UAW members with the possibility of new hires to follow, according to GM.
