The 1.1 million-square-foot plant, located on 141 acres on Davison Road, is triple the size of the facility in Burton that it is replacing. The increased capacity will allow for greater efficiency and output as employees unitize and packages as many as 120 million service parts a year.

Commenting on the opening of the new parts processing plant, Barry Engle, GM executive vice president and president, the Americas, said:

“This new facility in Burton will help us continue to deliver the industry’s best possible sales, service and ownership experience. Strategic investments in our core business, and the strong US economy, are creating opportunities for GM and its employees all over the country, and especially here in Michigan.”

Tim Turvey, GM global vice president, Customer Care and Aftersales, said:

“GM has the highest owner loyalty of any manufacturer, and a big part of that equation is getting high-quality parts into the hands of trained service technicians when and where they need them. That’s what this particular facility is so vital. Great service keeps our customers coming back year after year.”

The new Burton Facility at a glance

  • The parts packaged and distributed from Burton are used to maintain every Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicle sold in the United States, as well as hundreds of competitive vehicles.

  • GM and its general contractor NorthPoint Development broke ground on the new site in June 2018, and GM shipped its first outbound delivery in June 2019.

  • An average of 100 inbound deliveries and 55 outbound deliveries are expected each day.

  • The facility has 84 shipping and receiving docks, up from 35 at the previous site.

    During the grand opening event, Engle and Turvey underscored GM’s commitment to the Flint area by announcing $130,000 in new grants to several local nonprofits. The new opening of this new parts processing facility means that GM now employs more than 9,500 people in Genesee County, including the Grand Blanc headquarters of the company’s Customer Care and Aftersales business.
