GM to Beef up Lansing, Mich., Workforce to Make New Cadillac

Nov. 1, 2010
Automaker says it will invest $190 million in Lansing Grand River assembly plant.

General Motors last week said that it will spend $190 million investment to prepare its Lansing (Mich.) Grand River assembly plant for the production of a new Cadillac model.

The investment will create 600 jobs and result in the addition of a second shift, according to GM.

Built in 2001, Lansing Grand River is GM's second-newest U.S. assembly plant and the manufacturing home of the Cadillac CTS and STS as well as their V-series performance versions.

"America's fastest-growing luxury brand this year is about to get even more competitive with the addition of an all-new small luxury car," said GM CEO Dan Akerson. "This investment demonstrates GM's commitment to Cadillac and to a strong U.S. manufacturing base."

Since emerging from bankruptcy in July 2009, GM has spent more than $3.1 billion and has created or retained more than 7,900 jobs in 21 U.S. plants, according to the automaker.

GM said it will provide more details on the timing of the new Cadillac and the new jobs as well as the start of the second shift at a later date.
