A history of GM and Toyota in Fremont

16 November 2008 One Comment

By Karen Weise — As General Motors told Congress this week that it needed federal aid to stay afloat, the 510Report looks back at General Motors’ presence in Fremont. This timeline pulls together research from historic press coverage of New United Motor Manufacturing, Inc. (NUMMI), the joint-venture plant between GM and Toyota.

NUMMI has long been held as a one of the best plants in the country, with relatively collaborative labor relations, a highly efficient production process, and some of the lowest default rates in the industry.

Sources include Automotive Week, San Jose Mercury News, Detroit Free Press, The San Francisco Chronicle, the Argus, the New York Times, and NUMMI corporate website. Photos primarily sourced from Wikipedia Commons.
