The plan, which will bring 65 new jobs to Lansing, entails building a 225,000 sq. ft. facility close to the existing Lansing-Grand River plant. The exact location of the new stamping plant is yet to be revealed.
Lansing City Council will set public hearings for proposed tax incentives related to the new project early next week, the Detroit Free Press reports. GM has not announced construction or opening dates for the facility as of yet.
“Once again, our hometown car company is poised to grow and thrive, right here in Lansing,” Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero said in a statement. “We are incredibly fortunate to be a centerpiece of GM’s global strategy to build great cars, and we will continue to roll out the red carpet rather than the red tape to accommodate their future endeavors.”
The Lansing plant is poised to grow once it adds production of the next-generation Chevrolet Camaro to its production schedule. It’s not immediately clear if the addition of the stamping plant is related to the arrival of the new Camaro.
