We recently announced plans to invest nearly $154 million in our Lockport Components plant. The investment will be used to renovate the facility and purchase and install new machinery and equipment used in the production of the stator module, a key component in an electric motor. Electric motors will be used in a variety of our future Ultium Platform-based electric trucks and SUVs. Facility renovations will begin immediately.
As Lockport Components prepares for electric motor component production, the facility will continue to build a variety of components that supports our current truck and SUV production.
We are happy for the Lockport community and believe this is not just a commitment to our EV future, but to our future in Western New York. We estimate Lockport Components will add approximately 230 positions between 2023 and 2026.
“As a lifelong resident of Niagara County and with over 20 years working at the Lockport site, I know what a positive impact this announcement will have on the site and the local community. This new business announcement is a true testament to the dedication and teamwork of the GM Lockport family,” said Christine Wendt, Lockport plant launch operations manager.
