Back in June, General Motors announced a $119 million dollar investment into its Grand Rapids Operations plant as part of the company’s commitment to invest $1 billion in Michigan by 2030.
GM announced today they will be investing another $43.35 million for power train components at the 1600 Burton Street location. The new investment will create 55 new jobs while retaining 15 jobs.
“This investment signifies a commitment to the men and women of Grand Rapids Operations and their dedication to produce precision machined automotive components to support numerous GM product applications used in a variety of Buick, Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac vehicles,” said Grand Rapids Operations Plant Manager Rick Demuynck.
The plant currently employs 530 employees , 400 hourly and 130 salaried.
“This commitment not only reflects confidence in the Grand Rapids team, along with the leadership of the UAW, but also showcases the sense of ownership and pride our employees have in the products they build,” explained Demuynk.
Investing in manufacturing here in West Michigan is a win for the entire community.
