“We have had tremendous support from the City of Burton, including Mayor Paula Zelenko and the city council, UAW Local 651, the project management team at NorthPoint Development and the Michigan Economic Development Corp. to take this facility from concept to reality,” Engle added. “We are very grateful for this opportunity to expand, grow and contribute to the Burton community.”

 

The New Burton Facility at a Glance

 

  • The parts packaged and distributed from Burton are used to maintain every Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicle sold in the United States, as well as hundreds of competitive vehicles.
  • GM and its general contractor NorthPoint Development broke ground on the new site in June 2018, and GM shipped its first outbound delivery in June 2019.
  • An average of 100 inbound deliveries and 55 outbound deliveries are expected each day.
  • The facility has 84 shipping and receiving docks, up from 35 at the previous site.

 

During the grand opening event, Engle and Turvey underscored the company’s commitment to the Flint area by announcing $130,000 in new grants to seven local nonprofits: Boy Scouts Water & Woods Field Service Council; Communities First, Inc.; Flint River Watershed Coalition; Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan; Kettering FIRST Robotics; Neighborhood Engagement Hub; and STEMletics.

 

GM has awarded more than $5.6 million to Flint-area nonprofits since 2017.
