GM Delta plant unveils equipment upgrades; expansion is $580M investment

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – We have an update for you tonight on money flowing into the Lansing Delta Township General Motors plant.

Earlier this afternoon the automaker announced how it will spend more than $580-million at the plant.

Some of that money has been used to purchase a new set of automated guided vehicles which connect the chassis to the car body.

G.M. leaders also say money went towards expanding the plant by an additional 28,000 square feet.

Plant communications manager Erin Davis says the investment will help G.M. stay on the cutting edge. “All of the investment is for future product. It’ll enhance what we’re currently doing and then it’ll make us ready for future product.”

G.M. wouldn’t share what that next vehicle might be but an auto expert told us a “luxury cross-over” is a likely contender.
