Ultium Cells Welcomes Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen To Spring Hill

SPRING HILL, Tenn. – Ultium Cells today welcomed U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen to its battery cell manufacturing facility under construction in Spring Hill.

During the visit, Ultium Cells highlighted its latest progress on the 2.8 million-square-foot site as it prepares to begin production later this year. The facility will supply battery cells to GM’s Spring Hill assembly plant for production of the Cadillac LYRIQ and other GM Ultium Platform-based EVs. Once fully operational, the facility will create more than 1,700 new high-tech jobs.  

Hosted by Ultium Cells Vice President of Operations Tom Gallagher and Ultium Cells Spring Hill Plant Director Chris Desautels, the visit included a review of the construction site as well as a virtual demonstration of the company’s advanced battery cell manufacturing process.

Ultium Cells is a joint venture between General Motors and LG Energy Solution that will mass-produce Ultium battery cells to advance the push for a zero-emissions, all-electric future. Ultium Cells will provide battery cell capacity to support GM's North American electric vehicle assembly capacity of more than 1 million units by mid-decade, while supporting GM plans to supply other automotive companies and other industries including rail, aerospace, heavy trucking and marine customers.
