General Motors Closing in May for Retooling and for New equipment
According to the Lansing State Journal, General Motors will shut down the Lansing Delta Township Assembly plant in May for retooling and to add new equipment.
The shutdown will last from May 1 to June 6, said Bill Reed, president of local UAW 602. The retooling and new equipment being installed is part of GM's investment of $520 million in the plant for future products.
At the North American International Auto Show in January, GM announced that production of the 2017 GMC Acadia would move to Spring Hill, Tennessee. In the meantime, the Delta plant will produce the 2016 model through its life cycle.
The Delta plant produces the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave.
