Visit of Ambassador Cornado to the FCA Windsor assembly plant – November 26, 2015

The Ambassador of Italy to Canada, Gian Lorenzo Cornado, was in Windsor, Ontario on Thursday, November 26, to visit the FCA Assembly Plant where he was welcomed by FCA Canada Vice President Lori Shalhoub, and by Plant Manager Michael Brieda.

During the visit Ambassador Cornado underlined how the FCA group constitutes a remarkable success story, not only in a Canadian and North American economic context, but on a global scale, in the crucially important automotive sector. 

Approximately 5,000 employees work in the 4.4 million-square-foot plant, built in 1928, which produces the Dodge Grand Caravan and the Chrysler Town & Country and has a daily total production of 1,500 vehicles.  Its impressive automation system features over 1,300 robots handling body assembly and painting. The plant received a Silver designation in World Class Manufacturing in March of 2014 for demonstrating clear know-how and achievement in manufacturing methodology.

FCA Canada celebrated its 90th anniversary this year and, with its assembly facilities, an aluminum casting plant in Etobicoke, a research and development centre in Windsor, more than 440 dealers, sales offices and parts distribution centres across the country, it is a key driver of the Canadian economy.
