Investment creates 2,600 new jobs at Warren GM Tech Center

A billion dollar investment into the facility is bringing 2,600 new jobs to the center. Some employees will be working out of the old Campbell Ewald building after that company left for Detroit. 

The investment is also bringing other major upgrades. New design studios and a new building will open up at the center. The flooding from last August dumped 30 million gallons of water on the campus, allowing management to see how critical upgrades were. 

Construction is slated to start this month and is expected to be completed in 2018. 

What happens at the tech center doesn't stay there, though. The surrounding area will likely see a boost with a new dealership opening across the street. Talk is also in the works of a high-scale hotel opening up nearby.
