The first of three "mammoth" presses is up and running at GM's new stamping plant in Arlington, TX.  

General Motors Co. expects to save $40 million annually in fuel and other logistics expenses with the recent opening of a stamping plant right next to its vehicle assembly plant in Arlington, TX. It joins nine other contiguous GM stamping operations globally that have started production in the past five years. Currently, stampings for the four full-size GM SUVs built at the Arlington assembly plant are shipped from several locations—some more than 1000 mi (1600 km) away. The first of three "mammoth" presses had already begun producing parts before the $200 million facility's Oct. 14 grand opening. The first part produced was for the 2014 Cadillac Escalade. The stamping plant will produce large parts such as doors, hoods, and side panels. The Arlington plant is the lone global source for the Escalade, GMC Yukon, and Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban.
