Daimler Chrysler’s Belvidere, IL plant was named the 2005 recipient of PLANT ENGINEERING ‘s Top Plant, and our December issue highlighted the excellence of an automobile manufacturer in the U.S. using new and old techniques to grow.

Some of that growth is already evident, as Chrysler announced last month they were adding a second shift at the Belvidere facility to continue to build new cars. A third shift is anticipated later this year.

So how does a plant become a Top Plant? Daimler Chrysler prepared an inside multimedia look at the Belvidere facility and what makes it work. PLANT ENGINEERING readers can get an exclusive look at that video by going to www.plantengineering.com and clicking on the Top Plant logo to see this presentation.
