Production to resume in GM Lansing Delta Twp. plant

General Motors Co. is investing $583 million at its Lansing Delta Township Assembly Plant to prepare the facility for new vehicles.

GM announced in 2014 it would spend $63 million to expand the plant, and last year said it would invest $520 million on tooling and equipment for new vehicles. It did not identify the vehicles or say when they would be added, but said the investment would retain 1,900 jobs.

The plant has been shut since early May as new equipment was added and the factory was retooled. Production is set to resume Monday.

The assembly plant runs three shifts to produce big SUVs for GM, including the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia Limited. Production of the 2017 GMC Acadia has shifted to GM’s Spring Hill Assembly Plant in Tennessee.
