Construction of Ultium Cells LLC Battery Cell Manufacturing Plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee Progressing on Schedule

SPRING HILL, Tenn. –  Today marks the beginning of steel construction at the new Ultium Cells LLC battery cell manufacturing plant in Spring Hill. The 2.8 million-square-foot facility will mass-produce battery cells for electric vehicles and create more than 1,300 new jobs for the region. Since August, ground has been broken and concrete footings have been poured at the site. Steel construction at Ultium Cells LLC will continue into Spring of 2022.

“We are proud of this achievement commencing our project progression. Although this is just the beginning of many milestones in Spring Hill, Ultium Cells is well positioned and poised to maintain the momentum,” said Kee Eun, President. “Many thanks to the State of Tennessee, the Spring Hill community and our construction partners for their steadfast support.”

The state-of-the-art plant will use the most advanced and efficient battery cell manufacturing processes to power the all-electric Cadillac LYRIQ. The facility will be extremely flexible and able to adapt to ongoing advances in technology and materials.

“This is an important milestone for the Spring Hill Ultium Cells team and construction trade partners as we continue to build our physical foundation through the construction of our site, and our cultural foundation as we begin to grow our team,” said Chris Desautels, Plant Director at Ultium Cells Spring Hill. “We are very grateful for the continued support from the Spring Hill community and we look forward to sharing our vision of a new era of manufacturing and sustainability as we push towards an all-electric future.”
