The GM-DMAX plant will make components for Duramax diesel truck engines, supplying a nearby DMAX engine plant in Moraine.

The Ohio-built diesel engines will go into the new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra heavy-duty trucks, the Dayton Daily News reported.

GM’s executive vice president of global manufacturing, Gerald Johnson, said Thursday that the Moraine DMAX plant has been operating at high capacity to meet the growing demand for the Duramax engine.

DMAX is a joint venture of GM and Isuzu.
