Magna Celebrates Grand Opening of Exteriors Facility in Michigan



by Jon Knox

Magna International Inc. announced 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.
