GM LGRUS – The vehicle-maker says the extra shift and 500 workers, both hourly and salaried, are needed to meet demand for the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. Recruitment is underway so that the additional shift can begin in the 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.

GM’s second-newest US assembly plant, Lansing Grand River (LGR) produces the Camaro plus the ATS and CTS, as well their V-series performance versions, on a single production line. The additional shift will bring the workforce up to 2,300 personnel.
