Jefferson North to celebrate

by David Zatz on

Chrysler Communication’s Facebook group announced that the Jefferson North Assembly Plant, which builds the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango, will mark a special milestone later this morning.  The plant made the Grand Cherokee possible as an addition to the Jeep line; it was originally meant as a replacement for the Cherokee, not an upscale addition to it. Production began in 1991.

Jefferson North is the only major assembly plant to be entirely in Detroit. Chrysler’s Conner Avenue plant, which makes Viper, is also within the city boundaries. Over 4,400 people work at Jefferson Avenue.
