General Motors is investing more than $30 million to beef up the manufacturing capabilities of a plant in Pontiac.
The automaker said Wednesday that the investment in its Pontiac Stamping plant will involve upgrading three conventional press lines already operating at the plant and the installation of two additional presses.
The investment will help retain 290 hourly and salaried jobs at the plant.
Pontiac Stamping opened in 1932 and provides parts for several GM vehicles, including the Chevrolet Sonic and the Buick Verano, which are launching later this year.
Orion Assembly is the plant's primary customer.
