Former GM plant in Oklahoma is now hub for aerospace jobs
Ten years after GM closed the Oklahoma City plant in 2006, the sprawling 2.6 million-square-foot facility in southeast Oklahoma City is a hub for aerospace jobs.
Oklahoma County voters agreed in 2006 to borrow $55 million to purchase the old GM plant and lease it back to the Air Force for $1 a year.
More than 1,840 aerospace manufacturing and engineering employees now work in the plant, and the operation still is expanding.
