The General Motors’ Lansing Delta Township Assembly Plant crossed an important milestone in its history with the 2 millionth vehicle rolling out of the production line.
The automaker’s newest assembly plant in North America built a 2016 Buick Enclave sporting a ‘White Forest Tricoat’ paint scheme as its 2 millionth unit. The plant commenced operations in 2006 blending best practices and technologies, and was the first automotive manufacturing facility globally to be a Gold Certified Leader in Energy and Environment Design (LEED).
The plant since then has produced various vehicles like the Saturn Outlook, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia & Acadia Denali and the Buick Enclave. The manufacturer has announced more than $580 million in investments towards the Lansing Delta Township facility in the past two years for expansion and new tooling for future new vehicle programmes.The plant currently employs 3,200 people working on three shifts.
Mike Trevorrow, Lansing Regional Plant Manager, said that milestone directly reflects the dedication and hard work the employees put in building these crossovers every day. A strong foundation has been established in the team since the commencement of production enabling us to produce our 2 millionth vehicle in nine years, which is quite an achievement, he added.
