At Fields Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM Sanford we want to join Chrysler in celebrating a huge milestone for one of its assembly plants!
In Orlando, Chrysler fans will be excited to hear that earlier this month, the Chrysler Jefferson North Assembly plant located in the heart of Detroit, Michigan celebrated its five-millionth unit produced, and this time around it was the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Jefferson North Assembly Plant has since 1992 produced the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Commander, and the Dodge Durango.
To mark the occasion, a celebration took place and workers with 30 or more years of service were invited. In Orlando, Chrysler fans will also be happy to know that the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee was donated to the United Services Organizations (USO).
“Twenty-one years ago, the first Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled off this assembly line and while it was questionable whether we would ever make it to this point, the people in this plant never lost their focus. Certainly many things have changed over the years, but one thing has remained constant – the dedication and commitment of this workforce.” – Scott Garberding, Chrysler Group’s Senior Vice President of Manufacturing
The Jefferson North Assembly Plant shows no signs of slowing down production either. Last year, 1,100 new employees were hired bringing the total number of plant employees to 4.500. Additionally, the Detroit-based plant produced almost 300,000 vehicles in 2012.
