Magna International Inc. announced today the grand opening of DexSys, a new greenfield facility in Delta Township, Michigan, for the manufacture of automotive exterior products. Company officials were joined by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, United States Senator Debbie Stabenow, members of local government, and executives from General Motors to celebrate the occasion.
The 290,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art injection molding and robotic paint line facility will employ approximately 340 people at full production. The facility will produce front and rear fascias for several vehicles within the General Motors line-up, including the Cadillac ATS, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave.
"On behalf of Magna, I want to thank Delta Township and the state of Michigan for their ongoing support and collaboration on this project," said Magna Exteriors President Grahame Burrow. "They have helped make it possible for us to come here and establish this world-class operation, and we are excited for the opportunity to support our customer General Motors from this new facility."
With the addition of DexSys, Magna now has 28 manufacturing operations and more than 10,000 employees in the state of Michigan.
