Oshawa Car Assembly Plant

Oshawa Assembly

General Motors of Canada Company

900 Park Road South

Oshawa, Ontario

Canada

The General Motors Oshawa Assembly Plant has been building world class vehicles in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada since November 7, 1953. Before 1953, the facility produced McLaughlin Buicks and became one of six locations building Chevrolet before it merged with GM in 1918. During its first years of production, the Oshawa Plant produced Pontiac, Chevrolet and Buick models. In 2009 the plant began producing the 5th generation Chevrolet Camaro and in 2013 they began building the Cadillac XTS making Oshawa Assembly capable of building a model from every GM brand except GMC.

In 2010, the Oshawa Assembly Plant began building the Chevrolet Equinox in a partnership with CAMI Assembly in Ingersoll, Ontario. In order to respond to the increased customer demand for the Equinox, the shuttle program was created allowing CAMI to ship metal bodies to the Oshawa plant where they were completely assembled. This partnership continued for seven years, ending with the 2016 model year of the Chevrolet Equinox.

Oshawa Assembly is the most decorated plant with 29 J.D. Power awards, a proven track record of great quality and customer satisfaction. In 2014 Oshawa was recognized as the most complex facility in North America building several models and options on the Flex Line while also running a Consolidated Line within one plant.
