General Motors

The old BAE building on Taylor Street, just south of downtown Fort Wayne, has been unoccupied since 2015. But right now, you’ll notice that the parking lot is occupied by security officers and scores of Chevy Silverados and GMC Sierras. 

Due to a global semiconductor chip shortage, the General Motors Fort Wayne Assembly Plant is storing incomplete vehicles in the lot.  

Several GM plants around the country are utilizing this same process to mitigate the effects of the shortage.
