General Motors has resumed production of the Chevrolet Camaro at its Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant after a parts-related shutdown.The temporary shutdown began on May 10th due to a semiconductor shortage plaguing the auto industry this year.

The Grand River Assembly Plant produces the Camaro, along with the Cadillac CT4 and CT5. While UAW Local 652 workers returned to work on the Camaro on Monday, the Cadillac models are still expected to be sidelined by the parts shortage until August 9th.

Lansing Grand River spokesperson Erin Davis issued a statement saying that GM’s supply chain, engineering and manufacturing teams are finding “creative solutions” and “making strides to maximize production of high-demand and capacity-constrained vehicles.”

LGR will continue to support limited Cadillac Blackwing production.
