GM Lansing Delta Plant Builds 2 Millionth Vehicle, 2016 Buick Enclave

Gold LEED-Certified Plant Employs Ergonomic Innovations For Workers

Aug 14, 2015
Here at Truck Trend, we write about new trucks and SUVs all the time and often get to enjoy them by getting behind the wheel and writing a driving impression. However, the reality is it takes a lot of steps and effort to bring a vehicle from raw metal to a finished, reliable transportation conveyance. General Motors recognized the accomplishments of the workers at its Lansing Delta Township Assembly plant by commemorating the 2 millionth vehicle produced at the plant, a 2016 Buick Enclave fullsize crossover. It was one of the first automotive manufacturing facilities to earn a LEED Gold certification for energy efficiency and environmental friendliness.

In addition to the plant’s modern and eco-friendly design, the plant pioneered the use of a floating “Ergo Chair” to allow workers to more easily install interior fittings and reduce fatigue. More than $580 million has been invested in the plant to prepare it for future products, including a 263,000 square foot expansion. Since its opening in 2006, the plant has been the main source of GM’s Lambda fullsize crossover models, including the Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia, Chevrolet Traverse, and the discontinued Saturn Outlook. The Chevrolet Traverse was briefly also manufactured at GM’s Spring Hill, Tennessee, plant until 2009.
