General Motors to make major 'positive' announcement Friday at Toledo plant

General Motors will make a major announcement in Toledo Friday in front of several local and state leaders and lawmakers.

The company sent a media advisory Wednesday saying it will make a “positive plant manufacturing announcement” at Toledo Propulsion Systems on Alexis Road. Further specifics of the announcement were not provided.

UAW President Ray Curry, GM Executive Vice President of Global Manufacturing Gerald Johnson, Gov. Mike DeWine, Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Toledo) are among the people scheduled to attend.

The facility – which changed its name recently from the Toledo Transmission Plant – employs about 1,700 workers and makes transmissions for gas-powered trucks, cars and SUVs. UAW leaders across the country have been vocal about the importance of securing electric vehicle propulsion jobs as the automotive industry evolves.

GM has transitioned multiple U.S. assembly plants to build EVs, including Factory Zero in Detroit.
