Chrysler begins Jeep Patriot production

Chrysler begins Jeep Patriot productionIn the news: Chrysler's Belvidere Assembly Plant has begun production of the Company's tenth all-new vehicle this year, as the first 2007 Jeep Patriot came off the assembly line today. The flexible manufacturing plant launched production of the all-new 2007 Dodge Caliber in January 2006, which was followed in May by the all-new 2007 Jeep Compass.

"We are now seeing the results of our flexible manufacturing strategy that leads to a competitive advantage for the Chrysler Group," said Frank Ewasyshyn, Executive Vice President - Manufacturing. "Thanks to Belvidere's ability to build multiple models off one assembly line, we expect the production of three all-new models to cost significantly less than the initial investment we made in the plant to build one product."
