Special technology for Factory Zero

The production site in Detroit-Hamtramck  – named Factory Zero – is the company`s first assembly plant dedicated completely to electric vehicles. Gallagher-Kaiser supplies a new turn-key paint shop including innovative process equipment. The new facility will be the first paint shop in the US to utilize the “Kaiser Compact Eliminator (KCe)”, which is according to manufacturer information, the most effective wet scrubber available.

The eliminator – also commonly referred to as a scrubber or spray booth scrubber – collects the overspray paint particles to keep the air clean. According to test results, the KCe can reduce emissions significantly. The scupper is available for new installations but can also be installed as retrofit. General Motors is investing a total amount of more than 1,8 Billion Euro at its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant to produce a variety of all-electric trucks and SUVs. GM’s first all-electric truck will be a pickup with production scheduled to begin in late 2021.
