GM to build $130M computer center near Detroit
DETROIT (AP) - June 6, 2011 (WPVI) -- General Motors says it will invest $130 million to consolidate global data operations to its technical center in the Detroit suburb of Warren.
The company says the move will create 25 jobs. GM will renovate an administrative building to house the company's computer infrastructure. GM says the center will help it keep pace as computers are used more to design vehicles and for safety, fuel economy and other functions.
GM says the final phase will be finished by 2015.
GM says the investment is part of a $2 billion investment announced last month at 17 facilities in eight states.
