GM makes light truck transmissions and electric motors at the White Marsh facility.
GM announced the plant’s closure as part of a restructuring that will close four other plants this year and cut 14,000 jobs. Under the realignment, GM will abandon several car models to focus on trucks and sport utility vehicles as well as self-driving and electric vehicles.
GM, which long operated an auto plant on Broening Highway in Baltimore, opened the White Marsh plant in December 2000. The Baltimore plant, which once employed thousands, closed in 2005 and is now the site of an Amazon distribution center.
