Just Announced – Grand Blanc ‘Tank’ Plant Closing This Summer

The General Motors plant in Grand Blanc will close this summer according to a General Motors decision announced yesterday. It was frequently referred to as the “tank plant” because the U.S. government built this plant in 1942  to build armored tanks. Today it is known as the GM Weld Tool Center. It’s closing will mean it’s 343 employees – 28 salaried and 315 hourly will receive offers to transfer to Warren, Michigan,  or a plant in Ohio.The closing will cost the city of Grand Blanc tax dollars and income from the sewer and water fund. GM officials wouldn’t disclose how much money the plant closing would save them, but it is a significant figure. July of this year is the target date for the closing. How many more factories will no longer call Flint home?
