LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – More than 200 new jobs are coming to the General Motors Lansing Grand River Plant by the end of 2014, the company announced Tuesday. General Motors says the new jobs will be the result of a $44.5 million investment.
Officials say the money will help build a warehouse adjacent to the plant that will help manage the sequence of automobile parts to the assembly line.
"Parts come from all over the country here to the assembly plant," says Lansing Regional Plant Manager Tony Francavilla. "By having a logistics center [warehouse] next to the plant…we save in transportation and logistics costs."
Plant officials say the new warehouse should be in place by the end of 2014. Hiring for the new positions will begin sometime next year.
The GM Lansing Grand River Plant is the home of the Cadillac ATS and CTS. The Cadillac ATS won the 2013 North American Car of the Year.
