FCA will shift production of trucks from its current plant in Mexico back to a plant near Detroit and will also divvy up bonuses to the company’s American workers, in light of the recent tax reform law, The Sun Herald reports.

The company said roughly 60,000 hourly and salaried American workers will receive an additional $2,000, according to Reuters.

The new plant will add an additional 2,500 new jobs to the state economy, while Mexican workers will still continue to produce other Fiat Chrysler models at its Mexico factory, according to The Sun Herald.

If President Donald Trump holds to his campaign promise to withdraw the United States from The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), it could trigger a 25 percent fee on pickup trucks made in Mexico and shipped to America, Reuters reports.

Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne said news of the investment shows how committed the company is to investing in the United States, in a statement cited by CNBC report.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
