The following statement can be attributed to Tim Daman, president & CEO, Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce.

The decisions by the Lansing City Council and Delta Township Board of Trustees to amend their 425 agreement represent an important step in paving the way for the Lansing region to potentially secure a leadership position and partner with General Motors in its commitment to an Electric Vehicle future.

Lansing/Delta Township is the perfect location for the proposed GM/Ultium battery plant. A substantial amount of work needs to be done to secure this historic project. However, we are optimistic that our region’s proven track record in high-tech manufacturing and a workforce second to none will be difference-makers in the final determination about the project.  We commend the Lansing City Council and Delta Township for their leadership and willingness to make this important commitment that could result in a significant number of jobs and significant investment in our region.
