The truck and commercial vehicle manufacturer, Navistar, has won a significant new contract to build vans for General Motors (GM) in the US.

Navistar wins GM van production contractNavistar will build what is called the ‘cutaway model’ of GM’s G Van at its Ohio manufacturing plant from early next year.

The cutaway model is essentially the van cab/chassis version of the popular van, an offering ready to have a custom body bolted on to the rear, such as for RV, ambulance or mini-bus applications.

“We’re very pleased to partner with GM on this important manufacturing opportunity,” said Persio Lisboa, president, Navistar operations.

“Our Ohio plant is an important part of our manufacturing footprint, and we’ve been preparing it for a higher volume concentration of light- and medium-duty products as part of our manufacturing strategy.

“This is an important step towards our goal to drive automotive quality into the commercial vehicle industry.”
