FCA invests a billion dollars in USA. A very important commitment of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in the heart of the strategic market for the Group. Announced a few hours from the Detroit Motor Show.
It is about money – equivalent to almost 830 million euros – which will be used to optimize the factory Warren Truck Assembly in Michigan. Which will produce the truck and pickup of the Mark Ram. And above all it will allow to move the assembly lines in 2020 from Mexico to the States United. The operation will create 2,500 jobs. The time is right, because FCA will give US employees, about 60,000, a special bonus of $ 2,000.
The words of Sergio Marchionne
“These announcements reflect our commitment from American production and employees who have contributed to the success of FCA. It is right that our employees share the savings generated by the tax reform (Trump has reduced the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%). How 'right' to invest in the country openly recognizing the improvement of business conditions in the United States “.
It is a favorable moment for FCA, which also boasts the record of sales of Alfa Romeo in the USA. With numbers not high, but the progression and the rediscovered prestige of the mark are facts. The race continues, with Jeep trolling the sales in the world. The 2018 will be a crucial year, not only for Alfa Romeo, but also for Maserati. Biscione and Tridente will be key elements to continue growth.
