DELTA TOWNSHIP (AP) – General Motors is extending the holiday shutdown of its Lansing Delta Township Assembly plant for an additional week because of retooling and new equipment installation.

The Lansing State Journal reports production ends Wednesday for the year for both the Delta Township Assembly and Lansing Grand River Assembly plants.

GM spokeswoman Erin Davis says the Lansing plant will resume production Jan. 4 and the Delta plant will go back online Jan. 11.

Detroit-based GM has invested $520 million for new tooling and equipment at the Delta Township plant, which will retain 1,900 jobs. The Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia crossovers are made at the Delta Township plant, which is located in Eaton County.
