General Motors said it will spend $100 million on new tooling and equipment at its GM Components Holding Rochester (N.Y.) Operations to enable the plant to produce its next-generation small-block car and truck engines.
"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," said Cathy Clegg, GM vice president of labor relations.
The $100 million investment will result in 30 new jobs added to the plant's existing workforce of 826 hourly and salaried employees, according to the automaker.
GM said it will upgrade four product lines: the integrated air module; a new high-pressure fuel rail; a new lifter oil manifold assembly; and a new direct injection injector.
The parts will be shipped to GM powertrain plants in Tonawanda, N.Y.; St. Catharines, Ontario; and Ramos Arizpe, Mexico.
