Spring Hill was the site of the Saturn Corporation production facility, which operated from 1990 to 2007. The Saturn S-Series, Saturn ION, and Saturn VUE were produced there. In 2007 the General Motors Corporation (GM), the parent company of Saturn, shut the facility down to retool the facility for production of other GM vehicles. The plant reopened in February 2008 and became the assembly point for the new Chevrolet Traverse. However, after a battle among plants in Spring Hill, TN, Orion Township, MI and Janesville, WI; GM announced on June 26, 2009 that they had chosen to build a new small car in Orion Township.[5] Nearly 2,500 Spring Hill auto workers now face layoffs, buyouts and early retirements once the factory is idled in late 2009.[6]
