LINDEN NJ--GM's history in Linden dates back to 1935, when the company's 2.9 million-sf facility was constructed on the 102-acre site. The plant produced many of GM's best-known automobiles, including Buicks, Oldsmobiles, Pontiacs, Chevrolets and GMCs. During World War II, the Plant was re-engineered to produce Grumman Wildcat fighter planes for the US Navy and British Royal Navy before resuming automobile production in 1946.
This facility is situated on Routes 1 and 9 directly across from the Linden Airport.
The Plant stopped production in 2005, but kept the offices open through 2007. The sale of the property was completed on Feb. 1, 2008 and the next day demolition began.
I pass by this plant everyday on the way home from work, and was fortunate enough yesterday to see the machines in action. I actually felt the ground shake while the roof was collapsing.
