DETROIT May 26 General Motors Co (GM.N) plans
to invest $331 million and add 110 jobs at its Arlington,
Texas, plant, where it makes the Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban, GMC
Yukon and Cadillac Escalade sport utility vehicles.
The new jobs will be added to an existing workforce of
2,400 hourly and salaried employees at the plant, the automaker
said on Thursday.
The investment, part of GM's previously announced plan to
invest $2 billion in 17 U.S. plants [ID:nN1088442], is
primarily for manufacturing machinery, equipment, special
tooling and an expansion of the current facility.
Among the investments GM has already announced are $109
million at two Michigan plants in Flint and Bay City
[ID:nN13280742], $69 million at its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly
plant [ID:nN2597725] and $131 million at a Kentucky plant to
build a new version of the Corvette sports car.
