GM will invest $174 million in Lansing stamping operation

The line will produce stamping components for the Cadillac ATS and Cadillac CTS.

General Motors is investing $174 million in a new stamping line at its Grand River assembly plant in Lansing, Mich.

The operation -- set to open in 2016 -- will produce stamping components for the Cadillac ATS and CTS, GM said in a statement today.

As production of the Chevrolet Camaro moves from GM’s Oshawa, Ontario, plant to the Lansing plant starting with the 2015 model year, the new stamping operation also will produce components for the popular muscle car, a GM spokesperson said today.

GM has invested more than $530 million in the Lansing factory since 2009. The new stamping line will employ about 145 full-time workers, the company said today.
