The Chrysler Company LLC had a celebration to commemorate the beginning of the manufacture on the new 2015 Chrysler 200.The revitalization of the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant (SHAP) in Michigan is directly related to the creation of this new model. “The revitalization of SHAP is an apt symbol of how far Chrysler has come because of the courage and resilience of our people,” said Marchionne. “This plant was scheduled to close by the end of 2010. But the workers and the leaders of this community refused to accept this verdict as final.”
It will help create the new model and classic models like the 2014 Chrysler 300. This move marks a bold strategy by Chrysler automakers that is being headed by this new flagship model. Marchionne was joined by United Auto Workers president Bob King to make the announcement and to tell the triumphant story of SHAP.
“This celebration has been a long time coming for the workforce here at Sterling Heights,” said King. “They have proven that American autoworkers lead the world in building quality products. What has been achieved here is a testament to the collaborative spirit that exists between the UAW and Chrysler.”
The plant has added more than 800 new jobs as a result of the manufacturing plans and consistently gives back to the community it serves.
