GM Invests $5.4 Billion in U.S. Plants

Over the next three years, General Motors will invest $5.4 billion in U.S. plant improvements, and of that number, $783.5 million has been designated for three Michigan facilities. Broken down, this large investment translates to roughly $5 million a day or $150 million a month for the next three years, according to GM.

Of that $783.5 million, $520 million will be used for tooling and equipment for future programs at the Lansing Delta Township assembly plant, along with helping to retain 1,900 jobs. Another $139.5 million will be used to build a new body shop and upgrade the stamping facility at the Warren facility for pre-production operations.

With the upgrades to the Warren plant, all body panel dies will now be pre-tested in Pontiac under regular conditions, which will not only produce quality parts in a much shorter time, but issues with the parts will be discovered long before production begins.

"The common thread among our investments is the focus on product improvements that benefit customers," said Cathy Clegg, vice president of GM North America Manufacturing. "Together with our UAW partners, we're working hard to exceed consumers' ever-increasing quality expectations."

The remaining $4.6 billion will be detailed over the next several months, when GM will also announce the plants involved. This most recent investment announcement brings GM's facility investment total to around $16.8 billion since June 2009.
