I recently had the opportunity to spend the day with Chevy (and a few blogging friends) to visit the General Motors Assembly Plant in Arlington, TX. 

We met at the newly renovated Fort Worth Sheraton, where a slew of Chevy vehicles were lined up to caravan us to Arlington. 

The General Motors Assembly Plant, located on 250 acres, provides jobs for nearly 4,000 employees.  And since vehicles are being built around the clock, one comes off the line every minute!  It was pretty impressive to watch!

So what did a tour of the GM Plant involve?

Our group started off by watching a safety video.  (This is important, as people and machines are everywhere!) Next, we were able to hear what it’s like to work in the plant as a woman.  (Nope, it’s not just men in there!)

The fun began when we boarded a tram and toured the building.  We saw everything from windshields to door panels and tires being assembled.  Every area had a specific purpose and the entire process was very cool to see!  It’s amazing how everything lines up perfectly for that particular vehicle!  The plant currently produces the Yukon, Yukon XL, Surburan, Tahoe and Escalade.

I wanted to take videos and pictures, yet just sit back and soak in all the sights at the same time!  It’s definitely a place I want to take my children one day… makes you look at vehicles a little differently!  *The plant tours are not currently open to the public, but they will be soon.

The Arlington Assembly Plant opened it’s doors in 1954 and celebrated 60 years of production last year.  In December of 2014, the plant celebrated its 10 millionth vehicle: a black Chevrolet Suburban, which we were able to see at the Dallas Auto Show the next day!

    Are there currently public tours available to the public? If so, what days, what times, and cost. If you could forward this information to me, I would appreciate it. Thanks for your help and have a blessed week.
