TRENTON: About 270 jobs coming to revamped Trenton Engine Complex

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

By Erica Perdue

TRENTON — Chrysler Group LLC announced today that it will invest $114 million in new equipment and expects to create 268 jobs at the Trenton Engine Complex on Van Horn Road.

The investment includes using 400,000 square feet of the 2-million-foot building, which stopped operations in May.

“As Chrysler Group moves to replace seven V-6 engines with the new Pentastar V-6, it has become necessary to add capacity on core components in order to meet the production demands of this new engine,” Brian Harlow, vice president and head of powertrain manufacturing, said in a press release.

“This investment has also given Trenton North, which has been building engines for nearly 60 years, a new lease on life.”

At a special meeting Monday night, the City Council unanimously approved a tax abatement request to support Chrysler using the plant.

“We’re happy they found use for 400,000 square feet and hope that in the future they find use for the rest of the plant,” Mayor Gerald Brown said.

“It brings more jobs and a tax base, so we’re happy.”

Council members were enthusiastic at the special meeting when speaking with Chrysler representatives.

“Chrysler is part of our family,” Councilman Terrence Teifer said.

Brown said he is pleased with the fast pace at which the decision was made. He sent Chrysler a letter April 1 requesting that it return.

“My administration worked very hard to come to an agreement that will provide the city with long-term stability at the site, additional jobs and tax base improvement while further enhancing the relationship that Trenton and Chrysler have enjoyed since the 1950s,” Brown said in a press release. “Trenton truly is Chrysler Town and we are proud of it.”
