NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — General Motors is moving production of the next-generation Cadillac SRX crossover SUV from Mexico to a factory in Spring Hill, Tennessee.
The company also announced Wednesday that it will add some small gasoline engines to the Spring Hill complex.
The additions will bring more jobs to Spring Hill, but a spokesman wouldn’t give specifics on how many would be added to the sprawling former Saturn facility about 40 miles south of Nashville.
All GM said in a statement is that the SRX and a yet-to-be identified second midsize vehicle would “create or retain” about 1,800 jobs, while a $185 million investment in the Spring Hill engine factory would keep 390 jobs.
The complex now employs just over 2,300 workers, including hourly and salaried employees and those who work for parts supply companies.
