2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon Trucks Delivered to Dealers at Wentzville Plant
Event Highlighted the Plant’s Dedication to Quality
GMC and Chevrolet dealers flooded Wentzville, Missouri, yesterday to take delivery of their new GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado pickups. About 125 dealer representatives visited the Wentzville Assembly Plant as part of a dealer drive-away plant employees hope will build relationships between dealers and the plant.
Part of the celebration included an orchestrated photo of 37 trucks parked in the shape of the General Motors logo, shot from a helicopter hovering over the plant. GM and UAW leaders and public officials spoke at the event as well.
Wentzville is located close to St. Louis, and dealer representatives from the St. Louis area work closely with the Wentzville Assembly Plant to share customer perspectives and improve quality on the plant's products.
Speaking of the dealer drive-away, Plant Manager Nancy Laubenthal said, “This is a great way to showcase our shared commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.”
The plant, which also builds the GMC Savana and Chevrolet Express, employs about 2,600 workers operating two shifts. Recently, GM announced a third shift would open at the plant due to surprisingly strong initial demand for the Canyon and Colorado twins. The third shift, opening in early 2015, will bring about 750 more jobs to the Wentzville Assembly Plant.
