Saturn to Update Plant

Article excerpt

SPRING HILL, Tenn. _ Saturn Corp. will spend approximately $48 million to update and expand its manufacturing operations in Spring Hill to accommodate 1993 production. The money will be spent on a new carbon absorption system for emission control of paint operations, an expanded parts warehouse and plant rearrangement. The General Motors' subsidiary said the emissions control system would reduce Saturn's air emissions by one third and bring it into compliance with all current and anticipated state and federal laws for paint operations. About $13 million will be spent on facilities and production equipment to accommodate Saturn's new family of wagons and 1993 coupes and sedans. Another $10 million will expand the parts warehouse from the current 100,000 square feet to 310,000 square feet. Saturn will complete its current production Friday and will have built approximately 200,000 vehicles during the model year. SEC Approves Reporting Rules
