Welcome to Fairfax Assembly

The General Motors Fairfax Assembly plant celebrated the first dealer delivery of the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu on December 8, 2015.  U.S. Army Cpl. Trent Brining, a decorated Iraq War veteran, was presented with a 2016 Chevrolet Malibu to honor his service. In addition, the General Motors Foundation presented $100,000 in grants to seven Kansas City-area nonprofit organizations.  

The event concluded with the delivery of 32 2016 Chevrolet Malibus to Kansas City Chevrolet dealers.

“In addition to producing award-winning vehicles, our employees are dedicated to giving back to our communities,” said GM Fairfax Plant Manager William Kulhanek. “We’re proud to celebrate Cpl. Brining with a brand new vehicle built in his hometown, and proud of the impact we’re able to make each year with these community grants.”

It was announced by CEO Mary Barra on May 4, 2015, that Cpl. Brining would be one of five loyal GM customers around the world who would receive a new GM-branded vehicle.  The gift of a 2016 Malibu is part of the 500 million production milestone celebration that started at Fairfax Assembly and continued with celebrations in GM plants and communities across the globe.  

Through the GM Foundation’s Plant City Grants program, funds will support seven local organizations and community programs in the Kansas City area.
