Fairfax, Kan. - General Motors today announced plans to invest $200 million into its Fairfax, Kan. manufacturing site for production of an all-new Saturn midsize car, which is currently scheduled to begin production in the second half of 2006 as a 2007 model.

GM will use the investment to expand its facilities and upgrade machinery, equipment and special tooling associated with production of the new product.

"GM's investment is more than just an announcement about GM's commitment to strengthen and re-energize the Saturn nameplate," said Joe Spielman, GM vice president and general manager of Vehicle Manufacturing. "This demonstrates GM's commitment to the UAW, our employees, Wyandotte County, Kansas City and the state of Kansas."

Specific product information on the new Saturn will be released at a later date.

The assembly plant currently builds the Chevy Malibu and Malibu Maxx and employs approximately 3,000 employees. UAW Local 31 represents the plant's hourly workforce.
