(Portions from a Chrysler press release)

Yesterday we reported that President Obama was going to visit the Toledo Assembly - home of the Jeep Wrangler. Upon arrival at the 1.5-million-square-foot assembly plant, the President was greeted by Sergio Marchionne, Chief Executive Officer, Chrysler Group LLC; Vice President and Director, UAW Chrysler Department General Holiefield; and Director of UAW Region 2B Ken Lortz. Escorted by Plant Manager Mauro Pino and UAW Local 12 Committeeman Walt Schweifert, the President then toured the trim line where the front end, instrument panel and center console are installed in the Jeep Wrangler and talked with employees.

The President was introduced by Toledo Assembly Complex employee Jill Opial, 37, who has worked at the plant for 17 years. Opial thanked the President for having faith in auto workers and for giving Chrysler the opportunity to reorganize. Following his remarks, the President shook hands with employees as they departed the Chrysler Group paint shop.
