Chrysler Group has hired at least 600 engineers—and will hire more—to refill the product pipeline emptied during the last three years of corporate turmoil and bankruptcy.

I need bodies to make these cars,” Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said at the Detroit Auto Show on Monday, January 11.

Chrysler has already hired 400 engineers in engineering design and an additional 200 in quality, Chrysler executives said. The new hires are a mix of company and contract employees.

The engineers will primarily adapt Fiat platforms to vehicles that will sell under the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram brands in North America starting in 2012.
