General Motors will invest $190 million in its Lansing Grand River assembly plant for the production of a new Cadillac model. The announcement brings the total of new US investment to more than $3.1 billion and more than 7,900 jobs that GM has created or retained in 21 US plants since emerging from bankruptcy in July 2009.
Built in 2001, Lansing Grand River is GM’s second-newest US assembly plant and the manufacturing home of the Cadillac CTS and STS as well as their V-series performance versions. Earlier this year Lansing Grand River received the J.D. Power and Associates Bronze Plant Award for initial quality.
The timing of the new Cadillac and the new jobs as well as the start of a second shift will be announced later.
