LANSING, MI—General Motors has said it will build a $44.5 million parts assembly facility here at its Lansing Grand River Assembly plant.

The 2.5-million-sq.-ft. plant is where the automaker builds Cadillac vehicles. Here, GM will construct a 400,000-sq.-ft. building adjacent to the plant to sequence and assemble parts to make manufacturing more flexible at the site.

“This project is the latest example of how we’re doing business differently in GM today,” said Christine Sitek, GM North America manufacturing manager. “We’ve developed an innovative material strategy that increases efficiency and improves quality to benefit our customers, employees and the bottom line.”
