Ultium Cells Spring Hill Celebrates Million Hour Milestone

  • Commitment to safety and continuous innovation drives progress on the 2.8 million-square-foot facility
  • Momentum continues to build as the team ramps up employee hiring as part of its effort to create more than 1,300 new high-tech jobs in Maury County

Spring Hill, Tenn. – Today, the Ultium Cells battery cell manufacturing plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee, celebrated a major milestone as construction on the 2.8 million-square-foot facility surpassed its one millionth construction hour. Team members and construction partners gathered to recognize this historic milestone, occurring just over one year after construction began and without a lost-time incident.

“Our construction, engineering, and trade partner teams continue to do a fantastic job on the construction of the Spring Hill Ultium Cells Plant,” said Ultium Cells Spring Hill Plant Director Chris Desautels. “This dedicated team has prioritized safety, teamwork, and collaboration as they work diligently to hand over the building on time next year to a production team that is very appreciative of their hard work and dedication. As we continue to advance on-site, it is just as exciting to see our Ultium Cells workforce grow and begin to take shape.”

As construction progress continues safely, process equipment installation will begin next month, demonstrating the facility is on pace to meet start of production timing late next year. Once fully operational, the plant will create 1,300 new high-tech jobs to support the production of battery cells for GM’s Ultium Platform-based EVs, including the Cadillac Lyriq.

Job seekers interested in high-tech careers in battery cell manufacturing can apply for open positions on the Ultium Cells website.
