A bright red Cadillac CTS rolled off the line at Lansing's Grand River Assembly plant Monday morning and into history. It was the one-millionth car to be built at that General Motors plant since it opened in 2001.
Workers paused and cheered as UAW Local 652 president Mike Green sat at the wheel of the car as it rolled off the line.
During a short ceremony recognizing the event, Assistant Plant Manager Craig Colby thanked the workers. Lansing Regional Plant Manager Tony Francavilla and Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero also had words of praise for the workers.
The car is on its way to a customer.
The plant currently produces three Cadillacs. The ATS, CTS and CTS-V. The Chevrolet Camaro will be move to the plant in the future.
1,541 employees work at the plant.
