Hot on the heels of General Motors’ announced $63 million plant expansion in Lansing, Michigan, more GM business is coming to the area; next Tuesday, General Motors parts supplier Magna International is opening a 340-job automotive exteriors manufacturing facility around the Michigan state capitol.
The facility’s construction was encouraged in no small part by over $11.2 million in incentives and tax credits, according to MLive, granted by the state to Magna International and its subsidiaries. Those incentives will also aid in the creation of another 281-job, $57 million facility in Windsor Township that will create various interior panels for General Motors vehicles.
The new facility – called DexSys – likely won’t reach full capacity until sometime next year. It’s located in Delta Township, Lansing, and will produce automotive exteriors for General Motors within its 290,000 square-foot confines.
MLive quoted the Canadian automotive supplier’s President, Grahame Burrow: “On behalf of Magna, I want to thank Delta Township and the state of Michigan for their ongoing support and collaboration on this project. They have helped make it possible for us to come here and establish this world-class operation, and we are excited for the opportunity to support our customer General Motors from this new facility.”
