Feb. 12, 2015 – General Motors has announced it will invest $560 million to prepare its Ingersoll, Ont.-based Cami assembly plant, to build the next-generation Chevrolet Equinox.

Of the total investment, the automaker will spend $190 million directly at the plant on manufacturing equipment and tools, and $370 million in vendor tooling with suppliers in Canada.

“These investments, which follow planning and study with our partners, are a further vote of confidence in our employees, our business and our future in Ontario and Canada,” said Steve Carlisle, president and managing director of GM Canada.
