General Motors has idled its Lansing and Delta assembly plants for an additional week according to The Lansing State Journal.
The plant was original scheduled for a holiday shut down, and was to restart production this week. Now, the Lansing assembly will resume production on January 4, 2016, and the Delta assembly will fire up again on January 11, 2016.
Additional retooling and new equipment installation will occur over the extra week after GM invested $520 million into Lansing-Delta earlier this year. The investment also retained 1,900 jobs at Lansing-Delta, which currently produces the Lambda triplets; the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia.
