HUMMER Production Starting Ahead of Schedule

A limited run of HUMMER H3 and H3T models will begin this coming Monday at GM’s plant in Shreveport, Louisiana according to those familiar with the matter. Following the limited run, regular production will resume on November 9th.

Originally, dealers were told that production wouldn’t begin until November, and even though this only puts everyone a week ahead of schedule, dealers will be excited about having new inventory earlier than expected.

The Shreveport plant is also gearing up for global production, which depending on the destination country, could start soon. Building for left-hand-drive nations will only take some minor adjustments to the current equipment, but building right-hand-drive HUMMERs will take a more time and more equipment.

Currently, the plant equipment used to make these models in South Africa is being dismantled and shipped to Shreveport. Originally, the Shreveport plant only produced models bound for North America, but will now build H3s for all the 39 countries that have HUMMER distribution.

Moving global production to Shreveport is good news for the plant workers, who also make the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon – production of which has been somewhat sporadic due to the Cash for Clunkers program.
