Detroit Chassis No Comments

CDP building entry check-in area


There is one confirmed case of Covid-19 at Detroit Chassis (DCP). The Associate works in the Birdcage area. In response, the work area and all common areas were cleaned and sanitized according to CDC guidelines.

You can see, while looking around the plant that DCP, has changed a lot, including many protocols, policies, and procedures as it relates to the Safety and well-being of our Associates.

There have been many provisions made to both the plant floor and the offices. Some include:
• The addition of an on-site nurse
• A designated isolation room
• State-of-the-art no-touch temperature screening used by all Ford Motor Company plants
• Free unlimited Covid-19 testing at the State Fairgrounds

DCP is looking to hire 60 new Associates to ensure that we have the required number to run production and is diligently working with the UAW to ensure that we continue to improve the effectiveness of our protocols.


Associates were ready to get started and demonstrated a positive demeanor while working with enthusiasm as they reached production each day. Associates became quickly acclimated to new protocols for entering the building and working Safe while practicing social distancing.

David Forney, Interim Plant Manager, stated that 93% of the Associates returned to work at DCA. Associates are warmly received daily.

The entire shift enjoyed free lunch Thursday, May 21, 2020, in celebration of a successful week of production, no injuries, and no significant quality issues all without overtime.


Mike Russick, Quinton Harris and Justin Renisoff, Maintenance Technicians, DCP

The leadership team would like to express gratitude to three exceptional maintenance technicians who aided in all of the efforts to make Detroit Chassis Safer for all of us; Justin Renisoff, Mike Russick, and Quinton Harris. These activities include:

  • Cleaning production area fans
  • Installing foot-operated door openers
  • Installing touchless faucets on sinks throughout
  • Fabrication and installation of the partitions in all of the restrooms

All of these efforts were performed while many of us were in the Safety of our homes. Despite quarantine orders, these three gentlemen understood that their actions were critical to the successful re-opening of DCP. They committed to having these safety defenses in place before startup. Their hard work has not gone unnoticed.

Please join us in thanking the leadership team for all of their diligent efforts. They made this possible by working throughout the shut-down period.

Thank you, Justin, Mike, and Quinton, for your continued commitment to making DCP a Safer workplace, and thank you, Nurse Pilarski!

“I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with everyone at Detroit Chassis toward a Safe return to work. I commend all of the efforts put forth in taking all of the proper precautions to put the Safety and emotional well-being of the employees at the forefront during this unprecedented time. I could truly feel the care and concern and am proud to have been a part of it.” – Sue Pilarski RN
