The Oshawa employs about 4,500 people and makes the Camaro, Buick Regal, Impala, and the Chevrolet Equinox. It is a 9.07 million square foot plant (imagine what that property is worth? Insane) and it has won several awards for Plant Quality and long-standing commitment to build quality products (hmmm...sounds like a CAW bargaining tool).
We had a lot of fun and the experience was very cool (I mean where else can you see a robotic arm put a windshield on a Buick Regal? Come on now!). Just breath-taking....
Don't take my word for it - check out my Open House Photo Diary:
