New 251,000 square-foot facility will expand the production of critical engine components.

General Motors and Isuzu have announced a USD $175 million investment to build an all-new, diesel engine components plant in Ohio. This is a joint venture, 60% owned by GM, 40% owned by Isuzu Diesel Services of America. 

The new facility will expand the production of components for Duramax engines for the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.

Construction on the new facility will be completed by the end of 2020. “Strong demand for GM’s all-new family of Chevrolet and GMC heavy and medium duty pickups is driving us to find ways to build more Duramax diesel engines,” said Gerald Johnson, GM’s executive vice president of Global Manufacturing. “The Brookville investment will enable us to machine more engine blocks and heads and ultimately enable our DMAX engine plant in Moraine to build more 6.6-litre diesel engines for our Flint truck assembly plant.”
