Magna to build on former Chrysler headquarters

by David Zatz on

Canadian parts supplier Magna International, which is currently bidding for Opel, will build a new seating plant on the former site of the Chrysler Corporation headquarters in Highland Park, Michigan. The site was abandoned after the corporate offices were built in Auburn Hills.

Automotive News reported that the new plant will start production in May 2010, and will employ around 400 full time people; customers are expected to be GM and Chrysler. Michigan will provide a state tax credit of $4.5 million over seven years.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
