February 23, 2021

TROY, Michigan, Feb. 23, 2021– Magna has broken ground on a new manufacturing facility in St. Clair, Michigan, that will build complex battery enclosures for the all-new 2022 GMC Hummer EV, set to begin initial production this fall.                          

Construction of the 345,000 square-foot facility, named Magna Electric Vehicle Structures, represents more than a $70 million investment that is expected to bring more than 300 jobs to the city of St. Clair over the next five years.  As a result of the investment and job creation, Magna has been awarded a $1.5 million Michigan Business Development Program grant that will be awarded over time as jobs are created. Michigan was chosen over competing sites in the Midwest. 

The battery enclosure contributes to the structural and safety aspects of a vehicle’s frame and protects high-voltage batteries from damage and water. Magna can develop these advanced assemblies in steel, aluminum, and multi-material configurations, including lightweight composites, to meet the individual needs of its customers.
