Cadillac's five successful years.

CADILLAC is celebrating the fifth anniversary of the opening of its Lansing Grand River assembly plant in Michigan, America.

The facility began operations in 2001 after a $700 million investment.

Since the factory's opening, GM has spent $330 million in a regional stamping centre and $1.5 billion to build the Lansing Delta Township assembly plant, which will begin production of crossover vehicles before the beginning of 2007.

More than 6,000 people are employed by GM in the area, resulting in an annual payroll of more than $500 million. Lansing Grand River produces the Cadillac CTS, CTS-V, STS, STS-V and SRX models, some of which are exported to the UK.

The site has been ranked the most productive luxury car plant in North America for the last three years.
