Mitchell Applauds Fiat Chrysler’s Michigan Investment
WASHINGTON – Congressman Paul Mitchell (MI-10) released the following statement this morning in response to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ (FCA) announcement that it plans to invest $4.5 billion in five of its existing Michigan plants, as well as build a new assembly plant within Detroit city limits. Sterling Stamping plant in Sterling Heights, Michigan is scheduled to receive a $160 million investment and will add more than 80 new jobs. This is in addition to the $1.48 billion FCA recently invested in the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant to build the next generation of Ram 1500 trucks, creating more than 700 new jobs.
“I was thrilled to hear that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) plans to invest further in its Michigan manufacturing operations, especially at the Sterling Stamping Plant in Michigan’s 10th Congressional District - currently the world’s largest automobile part stamping plant. FCA’s realignment over the last two years to build more of its new SUVs and Ram trucks in Michigan has added millions of dollars to our economy, and has created hundreds of well-paying jobs for my constituents.”
