Sen. Cruz Visits Site of New General Motors Supplier Park in Arlington

“Hardworking Texans are excited about seeing more good-paying jobs and even greater opportunity in this community”

ARLINGTON, Texas – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today joined executives from General Motors, International Automotive Components (IAC) Group, Northpoint Developments and community leaders for the announcement of a new supplier park that GM plans to open to support future vehicle production at its nearby Arlington Assembly plant. The new supplier park is expected to be home to more than 1,200 employees and result in the direct creation of more than 850 new jobs.

“I was honored to visit with the good folks from GM and IAC here today,” Sen. Cruz said. “In Texas, we value jobs. That’s why people from all over the world come to the Lone Star state to do business. My number-one priority in the Senate continues to be focused on jobs and economic growth, because that is the number-one priority of Texans.”

In 1954, General Motors opened the doors of Arlington Assembly in Arlington, Texas. Since that time, the men and women of Arlington Assembly have produced more than 10 million GM vehicles that were sold around the globe. Today, more than 4,255 employees build 1,245 Chevy, GMC and Cadillac full size sport utility vehicles every day at the facility.
