GM to Invest $494 Million in U.S. Manufacturing for Ecotec Engines image

General Motors will invest more than $494 million and create nearly 550 jobs in three U.S. plants to produce the next generation fuel efficient Ecotec engine.
The project consists of the following:
Tonawanda — $425 million site investment will add capacity for the next generation Ecotec engine at 370, 000 per year and bring about 470 jobs to that community
Defiance – $59 million site investment will support precision sand cast block at a capacity of 188, 000 annually and result in about 80 jobs to that community
Bay City – $10.5 million site investment will bring new product to the plant (Ecotec connecting rod) and will create about 15 jobs for that plant.
The investment includes facility renovation, new machinery, equipment and special tooling to support this engine program at the three plants.
The investment in Tonawanda, supported by the investments at Defiance and Bay City, will go toward producing two next-generation Ecotec engines. The new engines will have additional capabilities to improve fuel efficiency and improve performance through advanced design and by adding technology.
