General Motors will include over 1,200 new jobs at plants in Michigan to produce crossovers and Cadillac cars.
The automaker declared the expansion Friday as a major aspect of plans to include shifts of production at two assembly plants close to Lansing, Michigan, by the second quarter.
The new positions incorporate right around 400 representatives to help the launch of the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 at GM’s Lansing Grand River Assembly and around 800 individuals to add a third shift to help the production of the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave crossovers at its Lansing Delta Township Assembly.
“We are excited to provide these opportunities in Lansing,” Phil Kienle, vice president of GM North American Manufacturing and Labor Relations, said in a release. “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.”
GM declined to comment on what number of the positions are relied upon to be filled by new representatives versus laborers who are on layoff.
GM says that since 2015, it has put more than $1 billion into its Lansing manufacturing operations.
The Lansing Grand River plant creates the Chevrolet Camaro as well as the performance variants of the Cadillac vehicles.
