Construction of a new battery manufacturing plant is underway


GRAND LEDGE, Michigan — Construction on the $2.6 billion Ultium Cells battery factory is on track. The plant is expected to create over 1,000 jobs in the Lansing area and is expected to be completed in 2025.

The new battery manufacturing plant is part of a partnership between General Motors, LG Energy Solution Michigan and Ultium Cells. The partnership secures more than $666 million in state and local incentives to build the plant.

Once operational, the plant will manufacture battery cells that will supply other Michigan manufacturing plants. Batteries made at the plant will help produce the all-electric Chevrolet Silverado and the electric Hummer, among other vehicles.

This site is Ultium Cell’s third manufacturing site in the United States and is part of a multi-billion dollar effort to revamp manufacturing in Michigan.
