A General Motors automobile manufacturing facility called South Gate Assembly was located in South Gate and was built in 1936. As the Douglas and Consolidated companies have aircraft manufacturing facilities in Long Beach and San Diego, the Long Beach plant originally manufactured Buick, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac cars before it was converted to war production in 1940. It also produced engines for the B-24 Liberator, Douglas C-47 Skytrain, and Douglas C-54 Skymaster aircrafts. This was GM’s most productive plant during the 1950s. After closing in 1982, the plant is now the location of South East High School.
