General Motors has started transferring all its operations from its previous Halol plant in Gujarat to the new Talegaon plant in Maharashtra. GM India President and Managing Director Kaher Kazem said all GM manufacturing in India will now be at the company’s Talegaon facility.
“The consolidation of manufacturing at our Talegaon facility is an important milestone for GM India,” said Kazem. “That said, we are mindful of the impact on our employees at Halol. We have committed to support them through this necessary transition with generous separation payments or the option of continuity of employment at Talegaon.”
Kazem said a range of additional support measures had been put in place for both the employees who opted for the significantly enhanced separation payments and those who will transfer, including tax and financial advice and pre-transfer visits to Talegaon.
“Since we first announced in 2015 that we would cease manufacturing at Halol, we have worked with all stakeholders to ensure a smooth transition,” said Kazem.
“GM India is very grateful for the continued support of the Government of Gujarat throughout our time manufacturing at Halol and through this period of transition.
I would like to recognize all our employees for their dedication, professionalism and contributions over the many years of operation and also to our suppliers for their partnership and support.”
Currently, General Motors is selling the Chevrolet brand in India which retails the Spark, Beat and Sail hatchback while in the sedan space they sell the Chevrolet Sail and Cruze. Chevrolet sells several UV vehicles which consist of the Enjoy, Tavera and the flagship model being the Trailblazer.
