General Motors looks towards the future as the corporation tries to finalize plans for the new Delta Township Assembly Plant.
The plant's air-use permit was reaffirmed on Thursday by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. After further review of the plant's pollution controls, the DEQ says it's living up to the highest standards in the nation.
A GM spokesperson says the company is currently analyzing its product portfolio to identify what product will fit best in the new plant.
The spokesperson also says GM will use Lansing's Grand River Assembly Plant as a blueprint for Delta. Officials will look at partnerships GM has made with the community and local workforce.
It will also look at the flexibility Grand River brings to the table. The plant allows GM to meet product demands without much reinvestment. The plant will not open for at least a couple of years.
