Thanksgiving is a time of reflection and celebration. It’s a time to have fun with our families and friends, to eat too much, to watch parades and football and, for many, a time to help others in our communities. Most of all, it is a time to reflect on what we are all thankful for this year.
At FCA, we too have a lot to celebrate as we break for the holiday weekend, including the many people in our community who have come together to work with us to support the building of our new Jeep® plant, the first new assembly plant built in the city of Detroit in nearly 30 years. The state-of-the-art assembly plant will be home to an all-new, three-row, full-size Jeep SUV and the next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee, as well as electrified models and thousands of new FCA employees.
Since announcing in February that FCA would invest $1.6 billion to convert two existing Mack facilities into a new assembly plant, creating 3,850 new jobs, FCA has partnered with local community leaders and organizations to listen to their concerns, engage them in the decision making, and ensure educational and environmental needs are addressed.
Just as many families come together this week to celebrate, these are just a handful of reasons why we are thankful this holiday season.
From our FCA family to yours, we wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
