ARLINGTON - A $1.4 billion overhaul will expand General Motors Corp.'s Arlington plant to nearly 4.5 times its size when it opened 61 years ago.

The project will add 1.2 million sf to the factory’s 4.375 million sf across 250 acres.

The facility will also be outfitted with new equipment, machinery and tools, as well as training for the 4,100 employees who create 280,270 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade SUVs each year.

Construction will begin this summer and span three years, said Cathy Clegg, vice president of GM North America Manufacturing and Labor Relations.

Development of the project will encompass 600 jobs, $1 billion in equipment and $300 million in construction costs.

With its latest upgrade, GM has invested nearly $2 billion in manufacturing improvements at the Arlington plant, the largest automotive manufacturing plant in Texas.
