Welcome to Wentzville
General Motors Wentzville Assembly has produced quality cars, vans, and trucks since 1983. The plant is situated on 438 acres of land in a former wheat field about 40 miles west of St. Louis in Wentzville, Missouri. Wentzville Assembly originally produced Buicks, Oldsmobiles, and Pontiacs before switching production to GM’s full size vans, the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana in 1996. Since then over 2.5 million vans have been produced at Wentzville winning several awards along the way including best fleet value in America for several years running. In recent years the plant has received millions in capital improvements, installed a third stamping press, and hired hundreds of new employees to support production of the mid-size trucks, the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. Wentzville Assembly was outfitted so that it can produce both vans and mid-size trucks on a single line and is the only plant producing the Colorado and Canyon in North America. Recent accolades for Wentzville Assembly include winning the 2015 and 2016 Motor Trend Truck of the Year with the Colorado and Autoweek’s 2015 Best of the Best Truck with the Canyon. GM Wentzville Assembly is represented by UAW Local 2250. The current facility employs approximately 4,600 hourly and salary employees that work over three shifts. In addition, Wentzville has a contiguous stamping facility on site that produces the majority of the body parts that are used in the production of the Chevy Express and GMC Savana full size vans. The Wentzville Assembly Center is the global production site for the full size van.
