General Motors’ Marion Metal Center opened in Marion in 1956 producing world-class stamped parts, blanks, and metal assemblies. September, 2021 marked 65 years for GM in Marion, a milestone that is reason to celebrate and reflect on the hard work of their current employees and thousands of retirees that spent their careers at the Marion Metal Center.
Throughout its history, Marion Metal Center has actively supported the Grant County community. Each year, their team supports a variety of local nonprofits during GM Cares week. This year, they will have employees volunteering at Cancer Services of Grant County, St. Martin’s, the Senior Center, and Humane Society. General Motors also has a Community Grants program. This year, the United Way and the Community Foundation of Grant County will receive grants for specific programs.
“GM and the Marion site have such a great relationship with the community on a personal and professional level. The ongoing support of the city and county leaders, as well as the people who work at and support the plant are invaluable. We love doing business in Marion!” said Communications Manager, Stephanie Mack.
When asked what the future holds, Mack said that their Marion team remains focused on their customers and being part of GM’s all-electric future.
