Officials from Generals Motors met with Gov. Parson and other state leaders to begin preliminary talks about a potential expansion to the Wentzville plant.
“I am excited Missouri has a seat at the table to compete for a tremendous opportunity that would provide a boost to our state and our regional economy,” Parson told reporters. His comments came following “a very productive briefing with representatives from General Motors.”
General Motors Wentzville Assembly has been operating since 1983 and employs roughly 4,600 hourly and salary employees who work over three shifts. The plant is situated on 438 acres of land in a former wheat field about 40 miles west of St. Louis in Wentzville.
