GM San Luis Potosi plant celebrates 10 years of operations in continuous growth
General Motors completed 10 years of operations at its assembly plant located in San Luis Potosi, a time frame in which the facility has increased its footprint from 154,000 to 250,000 square meters.
In terms of jobs, the plant went from 2,000 jobs in 2008 to more than 6,500 today, and from manufacturing a compact car, the Aveo, to three SUVs, the Chevrolet Trax, the Equinox and the GMC Terrain.
The company has not released recent figures regarding production volume of that plant. The most recent data, of 131,000 vehicles, dates from 2015, back then only Aveo and Trax were manufactured in there. Conservative estimates indicate that the current capacity is around 200,000 units per year.
In the same premises GM operates a production facility dedicated to build 9-speed transmissions, whose construction was announced a year after the assembly plant began operations.
