The General Motors broke some new ground rules on Monday when it unveiled $380 million expansion at its Wentzville Motor assembly plant.
With the opening of the Wentzville Motor assembly plant at an all time high expensive investment, GM intends to build the next generation of mid-size pick-up trucks which will create 1,260 jobs for the local Americans. The company didn't specify when it is going to finish the 50,000 square feet plant and also kept quiet on the number of pick-up car production in every year.

"This is what the federal government always expected for us to do towards the benefit of the local people. The new plant will give away jobs to those who always wanted to associate with the General Motors. This is indeed the happy news the auto fraternity and indeed a good announcement," said Stephanie Jentgen, official spokesperson for the General Motors.
Participating in the ground breaking ceremony at the Wentzville Motor assembly, the Missouri Governor Jay Nixon said that the latest and advanced motor assembly plant from GM can give away jobs to more than 3,000 workers by the time it gets completed in 2014. The Governor also reminded the officials of GM present at the ceremony that the company will get good benefits under the special scheme if it has crossed 10 years, provided it meets investment and employment targets.
"Today's ground breaking ceremony of the General Motors new plant is also a groundbreaking event which marks the opening of new jobs to the local Americans. And I'm immensely glad that the plant is being built in the Missouri state. Not only the investment by the GM is feasible in terms of providing jobs but also our state will get to see the latest and most advanced vehicles from the General Motors," said Jay Nixon, Governor of Missouri.
