LANSING, Mich. – General Motors is investing $36 million at its Lansing Delta Township assembly plant for future crossover production.
Lansing Delta Township 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 has invested more than $600 million into the Lansing Delta Township plant. For competitive reasons, GM is not disclosing specifics or timing related to the plant’s future products at this time.
