In order to meet customer demand, Chevrolet Equinox production will increase yet again with over 600 employees beginning work on a third shift at the Oshawa Assembly Plant. Just weeks after the start of regular production for Equinox in Oshawa, the third shift marks the final stage of the previously announced suite of capacity increases for the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain, two of North America’s fastest-selling vehicles.

“In one-third of the time it would normally take, our teams at Oshawa and CAMI have quickly implemented innovative solutions to satisfy incredible customer demand for these popular vehicles,” said Kevin Williams, president and managing director of General Motors of Canada. “The successful implementation of these unique capacity increases reflects the new agility and customer focus that drives every business decision we make.” 

In keeping with the longstanding reputation for quality and productivity that the award-winning Oshawa Assembly Plant has earned, a portion of the new shift will overlap the preceding shift for the next two weeks. This will ensure that best practices are passed on during third shift ramp-up, leading to the highest-possible quality of vehicle builds.

Sales for the Equinox have increased over 72 perc ent in Canada and over 77 per cent in the U.S., where more than 85 per cent of production is exported.
