General Motors says it will start construction of a US$174m stamping facility that will create or retain around 145 jobs.
The new operation, part of the company’s Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant, will produce stamping components for the Cadillac ATS and Cadillac CTS family of vehicles, as well as a future product.
“Lansing Grand River Assembly is known for the quality of its work and the flexible manufacturing that has been a trademark since it opened,” said GM North America manufacturing manager, Christine Sitek.
“Today’s announcement demonstrates GM’s commitment to strengthening key plant capabilities related to quality and efficiency.”
GM says the new facility, which comes on line in 2016, will save around US$14m a year in logistics costs tied to material handling.
