The General Motors transmission factory in Ramos Arizpe, Coahuila produced its five millionth transmission at the complex such global automaker has operated since 1999. General Motors issued a press release announcing the milestone event. The complex’s director stated that it was an honor for the plant’s workers to complete their 15th year of manufacturing activity, which has resulted in the manufacture of the highest possible quality and technology for transmissions. Transmissions manufactured in Coahuila are exported to final assembly manufacturing facilities in the United States, Canada, China and Europe. The transmissions are installed in models such as the Chevrolet Malibú LTZ, Chevrolet Equinox LTZ and the Cadillac SRX. The latter model is assembled in the same city of Ramos Arizpe. The plant is located on a 29.65 acre site and employs more than 600 employees on two production lines which assemble both “hybrid” and six speed transversal transmission units.
