Lansing GM Plants Won't Take Summer Break

General Motors Co. says it will keep most of its U.S. factories open through the normal two-week summer shutdown to meet demand for some of its vehicles.

The automaker says it will keep nine of 11 assembly plants open to make 56,000 more vehicles that are in high demand, such as the Buick LaCrosse luxury sedan and the Chevrolet Traverse large crossover vehicle.

GM said in a statement Thursday that the company is trying to reduce waiting time for dealers and customers to get vehicles.

Plants that will stay open from June 28 to July 9 are located in Arlington, Texas; Bowling Green, Kentucky; Fort Wayne, Ind.; Hamtramck, Michigan, Kansas City, Kansas; Flint, Michigan; Delta Township, Michigan; Lansing, Michigan; and Wentzville, Mo.
