Buick City Site to Get Pipe Manufacturing Operation

Facebook

A company based in Birmingham, Alabama is expected to announce today that they will launch a new production facility at Flint’s historic Buick City site.

According to the Detroit Free Press, American Cast Iron Pipe will announce plans to build components on part of the site which was abandoned by GM over a decade ago. American Cast Iron Pipe recently won the right to negotiate a contract to supply parts to the Karegnondi Water Authority 67-mile pipeline.

Currently, the Buick City site is operated by the GM bankruptcy trust, Revitalizing Automotive Communities Environmental Response, or RACER. They are splitting the 414-acre property into several parcels and American Cast Iron Pipe is expected to lease or acquire a small section.

Flint Mayor Dayne Walling, RACER Trustee Elliott P. Laws, Genesee County Drain Commissioner Jeff Wright and representatives from the EPA are among the officials that are expected to be on hand for the announcement.
