General Motors’ Lansing Delta plant already build the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and the smash-hit Buick Encore. Soon, the plant will add the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro to that last, as production leaves our neighbors to the North for Michigan.
Even better news is in sight for the Lansing Delta plant, because The Lansing Journal reports GM is preparing to announce a major investment in the facility that will have great long-term impact. Details are scarce, but Lansing officials confirmed the news with the local mayor saying it shows General Motors is “doubling down” on the region.
Delta Township Supervisor, Ken Fletcher, was quoted saying he doesn’t “want to steal GM’s thunder” regarding the upcoming announcement, but did have very positive words to say regarding the news.
“It is great news for the region and will mean a long-term commitment to Delta,” Fletcher said in a statement.
GM has already announced many positive investments for the Lansing area including a $44.5 million logistics center to sort and deliver parts to the assembly line and a $174 million stamping plant, both at GM’s Lansing Grand River plant, and a $63 million expansion at the Delta plant itself.
We’ll have to wait and see what the real news is, but we’re expecting big things with this announcement.
