Toledo Assembly Complex produces its millionth Jeep Wrangler JKWritten by Staff Reports | | firstname.lastname@example.org
The millionth Jeep Wrangler JK rolled off the Toledo Assembly Complex’s line the morning of May 17.
Chrysler Group’s Vice President of Vehicle Assembly Operations Mauro Pino and Jeep Unit Chairman of UAW Local 12 Dan Henneman drove the Wrangler off the line, according to a news release.
“Every Jeep Wrangler sold to customers around the world is born in Toledo, Ohio,” Pino said. “Since this facility opened eight years ago, the Toledo workforce has built every one of those million vehicles with pride, passion and a focus on quality. We all look forward to building the next million.”
“The Toledo workforce understands that the Jeep brand’s success is directly related to the quality of their work,” Henneman said.
The black 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition is set to go to a customer in Sarasota, Fla. In 2006, the Toledo Assembly Complex’s Supplier Park started production of the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited. This year, production of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee is set to occur at the North Plant. The plant is expected to add 1,105 new jobs on a second shift in the third quarter, which would bring complex employment to more than 3,000 employees.
