Lansing Delta Plant Builds 2-Millionth Vehicle!
It’s a landmark day for GM’s Lansing Delta Township Assembly plant, as the facility today churned out it’s 2-millionth vehicle, a 2016 Buick Enclave
finished in White Frost Tricoat.
Opened in 2006, Lansing is GM’s newest assembly plant in North America and currently produces the Chevrolet Traverse
, GMC Acadia and Acadia Denali, and the aforementioned Buick flagship.
The 3.4-million sq-ft facility (including the stamping factory) currently employs 3,200 employees on three shifts and was the very first automotive manufacturing facility in the world to be a Gold Certified Leader in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), according to the company.
General Motors has invested more than $580-million in the facility over the last two years, including a $63-million injection in 2014
to expand the plant by 263,000 sq-ft and $520 million earlier this year for tooling and equipment for new vehicle programs.
“This milestone directly reflects the dedication and hard work that our employees put into these crossovers every day,” said Mike Trevorrow, Lansing regional plant manager.
The manufacturing milestone is part of GM’s celebration of 500 million vehicles built globally, more than any other auto manufacturer in the world.
Congratulations Lansing Delta, here’s to another 2-million vehicles!
