LANSING, Mich. (WXYZ) — General Motors is adding more than 1,200 jobs at two plants in Lansing to help launch two new Cadillac vehicles.

The Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant will add a second shift in General Assembly. That will add almost 400 employees to help the lunch of the Cadillac CT4 and CT5.

Then, the Lansing Delta Township Assembly will add a third shift to support production of the Chevy Traverse and Buick Enclave, adding about 800 employees.

“We are excited to provide these opportunities in Lansing,” said Phil Kienle, vice president, GM North American Manufacturing and Labor Relations. “Our team members have proven experience in building high-quality vehicles and are well-prepared to meet the needs of our customers. This is great news for our manufacturing sites as well as the Lansing community.”

Both added shifts will be operational in the second quarter of this year.

Since 2015, GM has invested more than $1 billion in Lansing manufacturing, including $36 million in the Delta Township plant last year and $175 million at the Grand River plant in 2018.
