Canadian auto parts supplier Magna International Inc. has opened DexSys, a new greenfield automotive exterior products plant in Delta Township, Mich.

 

The 290,000-square-foot injection molding and robotic paint line facility will employ approximately 340 people at full production, Magna said, and is slated to 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.”

 

Company officials were joined by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, members of local government, and executives from General Motors to celebrate the occasion.

 

With the addition of DexSys, Magna now has 28 manufacturing operations and more than 10,000 employees in the state of Michigan.

 

Aurora, Ont.-based Magna International has 317 manufacturing operations and 83 product development, engineering and sales centres in 29 countries.
