GM announced Wednesday it will invest $37 million in its Lansing Delta Township assembly plant earmarked for tooling and equipment to enhance the plant's manufacturing capabilities.
Gm Manufacturing Manager for North America, Gerald Johnson, said that money will go into investments in the body shop, paint shop, GA shop, even into the Lansing Regional Stamping facility.
"It means we are making an investment into the future of this plant," Johnson said. "Lansing Delta Township is one of our newest plants and we plan to keep it on the leading edge."
UAW Local 602 President Brian Fredline said though this investment won't create new jobs, it does create job security for his members for a long time to come.
"We have about 37 million reasons to be happy right now," Fredline said. "What this means is GM has recognized the quality of the work force here, the quality of the plant, and the continuing quality of the product. LDT is critical to the viability and profitability of General Motors."
