Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is investing US$1 billion in a Michigan truck factory, moving production of heavy-duty trucks from Mexico to Michigan, and paying worker bonuses in the wake of the U.S. tax cut.

The Italian-American automaker will invest US$1 billion in its Warren, Michigan truck assembly plant to make the Ram Heavy Duty Truck starting in 2020. That truck is currently made in Saltillo, Mexico, where workers will continue to make commercial vehicles.

FCA says the Warren plant will add 2,500 new jobs.

The company also plans to pay US$2,000 bonuses this spring to about 60,000 hourly and salaried U.S. employees. Senior executives won’t get the bonus.
