GM Begins Expansion of Wentzville Plant
WENTZVILLE (AP) - General Motors began construction Monday of a $380 million expansion of its plant near St. Louis.
A groundbreaking ceremony at the plant in Wentzville is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Monday. Officials from GM, the United Auto Workers and political leaders, including Gov. Jay Nixon, are scheduled to attend the event.
GM announced in November plans to begin making Chevrolet Colorado mid-size pickup trucks at the Wentzville facility, creating 1,200 new jobs at the plant. GM already makes Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans.
