Stellantis Expansion in Belvidere, Illinois

Stellantis and the United Auto Workers have come to a tentative agreement to expand operations in Belvidere, Illinois. The agreement includes plans to invest $4.8 billion to reopen a distribution center closed in February and potentially develop a new battery and assembly plant. REMI analysis was run by Region 1 Planning Council to determine the potential direct and indirect economic effects of these investments in Boone County and surrounding counties.
