LANSING, Mich. — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) on Tuesday announced it would convert the Mack Avenue Engine factory in Detroit into an assembly plant as part of a $4.5 billion expansion that includes a $119 million investment to relocate Pentastar engine production currently at the Mack factory to the Dundee Engine Plant.
After the announcement, Sen. Dale Zorn, R-Ida, issued the following statement:
“I applaud Fiat Chrysler for the incredible investment they are making in our state and our people. The multi-billion-dollar project will provide exciting new opportunities for Michigan workers and enhance our entire economy.
“This is tremendous news for the people of Dundee and our entire region. Moving the Pentastar engine production to Dundee instead of out of state illustrates how far we have come to turn around our state and create a Michigan that can compete against anyone for new jobs.”
