Sterling Heights Assembly

Sterling Heights Assembly is a Chrysler automobile factory in Sterling Heights, Michigan. The factory opened in 1953 to produce jet engines. Volkswagen converted it for automobile production in 1980 and it was subsequently purchased by Chrysler in 1983. The nearby Sterling Stamping opened in 1965. As the plant was modernized in 2006, the old Stratus assembly line and tooling was sold to OAO GAZ and had been shipped to that company's factory in Nizhny Novgorod in Russia. GAZ continues to produce the Stratus under license there.
