DETROIT (WKZO) -- General Motors officials say the company plans to invest close to 450-million dollars to upgrade two Michigan plants. The investment was reportedly announced at the Automotive Press Association, and will include upgrading the manufacturing processes at Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly and Brownstown Battery Assembly plants.
