General Motors to open tech center in Roswell, Ga.
Thursday - 1/10/2013, 11:35am EST
ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal says General Motors will open an information technology center in suburban Atlanta.
Speaking at Georgia Tech, Deal said Thursdays that GM will buy a former UPS facility in Roswell for the project. It's expected to create 1,000 high-tech jobs and includes an investment of $26 million.
The move is part of a push by the automaker to hire up to 10,000 technology professionals over a three- to five-year period to produce GM software and other electronic applications in-house, instead of buying the products from outside companies.
General Motors Co. operates information technology centers in Warren, Mich., and Austin, Texas, and representatives say entry-level software engineers make $60,000 to $70,000 annually.
A company spokesman said the Georgia facility should open in March and hiring will begin immediately.
