Oshawa Truck Assembly
Oshawa Truck Assembly is a General Motors Canada truck factory in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. It opened in 1965, and has produced Chevrolet/GMC C/K and Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra trucks. It's part of the much larger GM Autoplex, which also includes two car assembly plants and a now closed battery plant. The plant is located next to major highways and rail lines, giving it easy access to parts and markets across North America.
GM announced on June 3, 2008 that this plant would close permanently in 2009, with no future plans for new products as high gasoline prices currently in Canada, and much of the world, are creating a decreasing demand for trucks and truck based vehicles.
