Wixom Assembly Plant

Carol HopkinsGeneral RV Center has opened its new corporate headquarters on a section of the former Ford Wixom Assembly plant site.

The new 98, 000-square-foot corporate headquarters, which opened May 20, has more than 500 recreation vehicles on site, 40 service bays, a massive parts store and employs more than 200 people.

The center sits on the 34-acre assembly plant lot west of South Wixom Road and north of I-96.

Ford opened the plant in 1957 and stopped production in 2007. The plant and site lay dormant until late 2012.

General RV Center broke ground in 2013.

“The City of Wixom has always been a great place to do business, going all the way back to 1957 when Ford opened its plant. The Ford Assembly Plant was a true landmark and was one of the largest, most efficient and technologically advanced plants in the world, ” said Loren Baidas, General RV Center president.

“We’re proud to take part in repurposing the Assembly Plant site and in continuing the strong legacy that’s been established at this iconic site.”

In the mid-1990s, after outgrowing the original site of General Trailers in Southfield and opening multiple stores throughout Michigan, the company opened its original corporate headquarters in Wixom — about a mile from the new facility.

Officials said the new RV headquarters — the nation’s largest family-owned RV business — is bringing in new business development and employment for the area.

“Our headquarters is the most up-to-date RV facility in the U.S. and will serve RVers from across the country, ” said Rob Baidas, General RV chairman.
