GM and LG Energy Solution joint venture $2.3 billion battery cell plant in northeast Ohio is running. The plant will eventually employ 1,300 people.
General Motors is now making the battery cells for its GMC Hummer EV and SUV, both to be built at Factory Zero in Detroit.
Ultium Cells LLC, the joint venture between GM and LG Energy Solution, said Wednesday it had started production at its new battery cell factory in northeast Ohio.
When asked when the plant started operations, Waid declined to disclose specific information citing competitive reasons. She wrote in an email to the Free Press, "We have chosen to recognize these milestones internally as One Ultium Team. We are happy to share the process of the Ultium Cells team with Ohio Gov. DeWine today."
