WARREN, Mich. – Fiat Chrysler's Warren Stamping Plant is set to show off its new million dollar investment that will increase capacity and yield state-of-the-art production.

On January 22,  the plant will celebrate its new high-speed Servo Tandem Press, the latest in technology. Construction for the new press began in the summer of 2014, and was made possible by Fiat Chrysler's $63 million investment into the Warren Stamping plant.

The plant currently operates 12 major press lines, along with three large progressive press lines, which produce 80 million parts each year. But the addition of the servo press will increase the plant's capacity by up to 3.6 million parts per year.

A ceremony celebrating the new press will happen Friday at the Warren Stamping Plant.
