Pillette Road Truck Assembly Plant is a former Chrysler automobile factory in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. The plant built the Dodge Ram Van and Dodge Ram Wagon from its opening in 1974 to its closing in 2003. Total lifetime production was 2,309,399 units with a peak production of 124,124 in 1984.
As the full size van market declined, and Chrysler's share of the market shrunk, Chrysler discontinued the Ram Van and Wagon in 2003. Unable to secure a replacement product, the plant closed July 2003, despite a recently constructed paint shop building. The original assembly plant and adjacent paint shop building were subsequently demolished.
