Posted at 11:02 AM, Jan 04, 2016

General Motors is adding a third shift and will create more than 500 hourly and salaried jobs at Lansing’s Grand River Assembly plant to meet expected demand for the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro.

The third shift will increase the plant’s workforce to approximately 2300 when the hiring has been completed.

The new Camaro began shipping to customers in November. The Lansing plant also produces the Cadillac ATS and CTS.

Hiring for the third shift has already begun, and the shift is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2016.
