General Motors plans to invest $200 million in its Orion Assembly and Pontiac Metal Center plants to prepare for a future vehicle program.
Orion plant will receive $160 million for tooling and equipment, and Pontiac will receive $40 million for new dies. Orion Assembly is the first GM facility to receive the Clean Corporate Citizen designation by the State of Michigan.
The Pontiac Metal Center is a 1.2-million-square-foot facility that stamps metal parts for 20 different vehicle models. Pontiac recently earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® Challenge for Industry, one of only two GM plants in the world to meet the challenge three times.
These $200 million is part of the nearly $300 million in Michigan-based investments that GM CEO Mary Barra referenced in a speech at the Detroit Economic Club.
