Chrysler Group, thanks to a tax abatement
from the Trenton (Michigan) City Council,
will re-open an engine plant, creating 268 jobs
by 2013.

The Chrysler Group announced on Friday, June 17th, that it will re-open the Trenton (Michigan) North Engine Plant, two days after Trenton City Council approved a tax abatement. Trenton North ceased operations in May 2011.

Chrysler stated the company plans to invest $114 million into its' Trenton Engine Complex creating up to 268 jobs for laid-off workers of Chrysler and new workers after initial positions are filled by 2013, according to a company spokeswoman.
The investment will be used to re-purpose one-fifth of the Trenton North Engine Plant for the production of core components for the Pentastar engine, produced at its sister plant, Trenton South. 

"As Chrysler Group moves to replace seven V-6 engines with the new Pentastar V-6, it has become necessary to add capacity on core components in order to meet the production demands of this new engine," said Brian Harlow, vice president and head of powertrain manufacturing. "This investment has also given Trenton North, which has been building engines for nearly 60 years, a new lease on life."
"We want to thank the city of Trenton for approving our tax abatement request and their continued support," Harlow noted.
Information on positions at the Trenton Engine Plant, will be posted at the Chrysler's Hourly Jobs Careers Website.
