General Motors is investing $100 million and creating 30 jobs in Rochester, New York. The company will expand its GM Components Holdings operations there.
"This investment in our manufacturing operations will enable us to produce a new generation of fuel-efficient small block car and truck engines," said Cathy Clegg, GM vice president of Labor Relations. "The Gen V small block engine family will have unprecedented fuel efficiency, and GMCH Rochester Operations will play a key role in helping us deliver these efficient engines to our customers."
The facility will improve four production lines at the facility. The parts it produces will be shipped to GM Powertrain plants in Tonawanda, New York; St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada; and Ramos Arizpe, Mexico.
The New York Empire State Development Corporation, Rochester Gas and Electric, and United Auto Workers (UAW) helped facilitate the expansion.
