GM to start building a $174 million stamping facility at Lansing plant

Article by Christian A., on August 17, 2014

General Motors will commence construction of a $174-million stamping facility at its Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant, resulting to the creation or retention of around 145 jobs. The new facility will be operational in 2016 and will build stamping components for the Cadillac ATS and Cadillac CTS family of vehicles as well a future product.

GM North America Manufacturing Manager Christine Sitek remarked that the disclosure of the new investment demonstrates GM’s commitment to strengthening its key plant capabilities related to quality and efficiency.

The new facility is expected to help GM save around $14 million annually in logistics costs related to material handling. Lansing Grand River -- the carmaker’s second-newest assembly plant in the US – is home for the Cadillac ATS, CTS and the CTS V-series performance versions.

UAW Vice President Cindy Estrada remarked that the investment is a vote of confidence in the hard-working membership of UAW Local 652.

He said that the union is proud of the role it played in helping rebuild Michigan’s economy via collective bargaining and negotiations for investment and jobs in UAW-represented plants.

UAW Region 1D Director Gerald Kariem remarked that UAW members at General Motors' Lansing Grand River plant are thrilled on the additional investment and the jobs it will create. [source: General Motors]
