Investment in CAMI-GM Ingersoll a Boost for Industry and Community 
INGERSOLL, ON, March 8, 2013 /CNW/ - The CAW is applauding the announcement by 
General Motors this morning to invest $250 million in its CAMI facility, in 
Ingersoll, Ontario. 
The new investment will be used to turn CAMI into a flexible manufacturing 
facility that can produce multiple architectures and body styles. 
"This is excellent news for the Canadian auto industry, workers and the 
community that greatly depends on this manufacturing facility," said CAW 
National President Ken Lewenza. "New investment in infrastructure is difficult 
to obtain in today's economic climate. This success can be directly attributed 
to the quality work of CAW members at CAMI." 
The expansion and transformation of the current body shop, as well as new 
tooling is needed to support a future new product program, according to 
General Motors. 
"Workers at CAMI have demonstrated many times over that this unionized 
facility is incredibly productive and competitive within the Canadian, and 
indeed North American auto industry," said CAW Local 88 President Dan 
Borthwick, representing workers at the CAMI facility. 
"Investment in infrastructure will mean greater job security for those working 
at the facility and the thousands of other workers whose livelihoods depend on 
it," Borthwick said.
