GM offering public tours of Arlington assembly plant
General Motors is offering public tours its Arlington assembly plant for three days this week to see vehicles being produced on the assembly line.
This will be the first public tours since the Super Bowl week 20111, when bad weather and ice forced GM to cancel planned tours. Tour times are 11:30 to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 7:40 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday.
Pre-registration is required and can only be done online at: http://arlington.gmplantnews.com
GM will allow visitors touring the plant during the open house events to bring cameras and take pictures.
Visitors must wear closed-toe shoes. No open-toed, open-heeled shoes or high heels, sandals, crocs or flip flops are allowed in the manufacturing area.
The GM assembly plant in Arlington began production in January of 1954 and currently employs more than 2,500 people producing GMC Yukon, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, and Cadillac Escalade sport utility vehicles. The plant produces approximately 1,162 vehicles daily.
