General Motors’ assembly plant in Lansing Grand River will be temporarily closed due to semiconductor shortages
LANSING, Michigan – General Motors’ assembly plant in Lansing, Grand River, is temporarily closing due to a semiconductor shortage.
The closure begins on Monday and lasts until the end of March. This affects 1,400 employees in the plant.
“We continue to work closely with our supply base to find solutions to our suppliers’ semiconductor needs and reduce the impact on GM,” said communications coordinator Erin Davis. “Our intention is to make up for as much production loss as possible in these plants.”
This is the fifth genetically modified plant to be temporarily closed due to the shortage and affects more than 11,000 employees worldwide. Other locations are: Fairfax, Kansas; Ingersoll, Ontario; Gravatai, Brazil; and San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
GM’s Lansing Delta Township Plant will remain open.
