One of the last plants in the Motor City, Jefferson North Assembly is a Chrysler automobile factory that employs more than 4,000 men and women. Located approximately six miles east of downtown, the factory opened in 1991 as a major commitment to the area by the Chrysler Corporation and has expanded twice. The Jefferson North Assembly Plant’s first product was the Jeep Grand Cherokee which they continue to produce to this day. On Aug. 13, 2013, Jefferson North employees celebrated the five millionth vehicle to roll off the line, a Billet Silver 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was donated to the USO.
