Saint Louis Assembly
Saint Louis Assembly is a Chrysler automobile factory in Fenton, Missouri. The "South" plant opened in 1959, while the "North" portion opened in 1966. Saint Louis North was the home of minivan production from 1987 through 1995, when it was converted for the Dodge Ram pickup truck. Minivan production was switched to the South plant (shuttered since 1991) that year and has continued there since.
On December 13, 2005, DaimlerChrysler announced that it would spend US$1 billion upgrading the two Saint Louis plants to be more flexible and efficient. This process will occur between 2006 and 2010. It is likely that production of more Chrysler and Dodge-branded cars would be concentrated there in the future.
