The original plant, which employed 939 workers, opened in 1965, producing both Chevrolet Biscaynes and Pontiac Strato Chiefs. Production switched over to building the Chevrolet Monza, Pontiac Sunbird, Oldsmobile Starfire and Buick Skyhawk. By 1978, more than 4,000 workers were employed at the Boisbriand plant, producing over 100,000 units annually.
By 1995, annual production numbers climbed to 186,000. By the year 2000, the number had dropped to 75,000 units. Tough North-American competition and the lack of profitability eventually caught-up to the Boisbriand plant. GM elected to close the plant and concentrate its activities in Windsor and Detroit.
While Boisbriand production ceased over 10 years ago, the Z28 continues as a 2014 model.
