General Motors is investing US$36m at its Lansing Delta Township, Michigan assembly plant for future crossover production. Lansing Delta Township (LDT) currently builds the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave crossovers.
"We are proud of the hard work and commitment of the entire Lansing team and the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave are important products in our growing crossover portfolio," said GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra during a visit to the plant to meet with employees and community leaders. "This investment will allow us to prepare the plant for future crossover production."
Since 2009, GM says it has invested more than US$600m into the Lansing Delta Township plant. For competitive reasons, GM is not disclosing specifics or timing related to the plant's future products.
Lansing Delta Township assembly, GM's newest assembly plant in the United States, has built more than 2m crossovers since the facility opened in 2006. The plant operates two shifts of production and employs approximately 2,600 employees.
