Warren has been bronzed

by David Zatz on

The Warren truck plant has been awarded bronze status in World Class Manufacturing (WCM), the 20th North American facility to reach that milestone. Ironically, the plant is to be repurposed as mainstream Ram production moves to Sterling Heights, a short drive down the street.

The 78-year-old plant in the suburbs of Detroit, near the GM technical center, has long been devoted to making trucks. WCM was first used by Fiat in 2006, and was brought to Chrysler when the companies began to merge. It combines aspects of existing quality systems, using multiple-day audits to confirm status awards. Three North American plants have gone from bronze to silver (Windsor Assembly, Dundee Engine, and Toledo Assembly).
