General Motors closing tooling plant in Grand Blanc

by

DETROIT (WKZO) -- General Motors officials say a tooling systems plant near Flint will close by the end of June.

The Grand Blanc North American Tooling Center has nearly 350 employees and builds systems to support vehicles including the Chevrolet Volt and the Buick Regal.  The 1.7-million-square-foot plant was built by the federal government in 1942 to produce tanks during World War Two and later, the Korean War.

GM says moving the tooling operations to other facilities will translate into considerable savings and jobs will be offered to the displaced UAW workers at its other plants.
