United States : GMs Lansing Grand River Assembly to Add Third Shift and More Than 500 Jobs.

General Motors is adding a third shift and more than 500 hourly and salaried jobs at Lansing Grand River Assembly to meet forecasted market demand for the award-winning 2016 Chevrolet Camaro.

The addition of a third shift will increase the plants workforce to approximately 2,300 when hiring is completed.

The sixth generation Camaro, which began shipping to customers in November, as well as the award-winning Cadillac CTS and ATS are also produced at Lansing Grand River.

Since its introduction, the Camaro has earned praise from customers and media alike. Motor Trend editors named the Camaro the Motor Trend Car of the Year for 2016, saying The Chevrolet Camaro is a better, more entertaining car to drive than a BMW 3 Series.

Third shift hiring is underway at the plant, and the shift is scheduled to begin in second quarter.

This is the result of the award-winning vehicles Lansing Grand River produces and the confidence GM has in our team to build world-class quality for our customers, said Lansing Regional Plant Manager Mike Trevorrow.

Said UAW Local 652 President Mike Green: This is an exciting time at LGR. We just added the Chevrolet Camaro to our vehicle line up and now we get to expand the UAW-GM family, which will bring the plant to full capacity.

Built in 2001, Lansing Grand River is GMs second-newest U.S. assembly plant and manufactures the Camaro and the ATS and CTS as well as their V-series performance versions, on a single production line.
