    BREAKING: Graham out at Corvette Assembly Plant; Bob Parcell of CAMI in

    BREAKING: Graham out at Corvette Assembly Plant; Bob Parcell of CAMI in


    Paul Graham announced this morning that he is leaving Bowling Green Assembly on Oct 1 to take the position as plant manager of Arlington Assembly and will be replaced by Bob Parcell of CAMI Automotive.

    CAMI Automotive is a joint venture between Suzuki and GM located in Ingersoll, Ontario Canada.

    Bob Parcell was President of CAMI

    CAMI automotive builds sport utilities, including the Chevrolet Tracker, the Suzuki Vitara, Suzuki Swift, Suzuki Sidekick, the Geo Metro, and Chevrolet Equinox.

    The announcement of Bob Parcell taking over at the General Motors Assembly Plant in Bowling Green has not been announced to employees yet.

    CAMI workers enjoyed the success of the Cash for Clunkers program as optional overtime shifts were added to meet increased demand.

    "It's quite a relief, especially since we were anticipating having to work enormous amounts of overtime. The numbers showed they could not fulfil the demand even with overtime,"
    said CAW spokesperson Mike Murphy.

    With the recent launch of the Terrain, a crossover utility vehicle, CAMI president Bob Parcell said the plant was lucky to have

    "two very hot vehicles in the marketplace".

    Local GM plant getting new manager

    By the Bowling Green Daily News

    The General Motors Bowling Green Assembly Plant will have a new plant manager after the current manager transfers this fall, according to Eldon Renaud, president of the UAW Local 2164.

    Bob Parcell, current president of Cami Automotive in Canada, will take over as the local plant manager Oct. 1 after current manager Paul Graham transfers to a plant in Arlington, Texas, Renaud said.

    Graham declined comment until plant officials meet with employees.

    Parcell began working in finance with Pontiac in 1981 and mainly has worked in finance since then. He has worked with electric and hybrid car divisions and has been manager of a GM plant in Missouri, Renaud said.

    Graham has been manager since January 2008 when he took over from Wil Cooksey. Before coming to Bowling Green, Graham transferred from the Fairfax Assembly plant in Alabama where he was assistant plant manager.

    The local plant has been temporarily closed the majority of the summer as the company works to revamp itself.
