General Motors is currently under serious talks with the city of Warren, Michigan to profoundly expand the Warren Tech Center. The proposed expansion would include new construction of building, renovations and most importantly, new jobs.
Currently, the topic of discussion is securing tax incentives for the expansion, according to a report from The Detroit News. If incentives are approved, the proposal will work its way to GM senior management for approval.
“It’s something we’re seriously looking at, and [it is] still in the review process,” GM spokesman Dan Flores said. “It’s not a done deal.”
One thing is certain according to Flores, though. The site would be hiring many new employees to fill the additional expansion.
“We’re pulling together this business case and want to make it as competitive as possible. We’re going to need more workspace to accommodate our growth forecast.”
Specific employment and investment numbers were not provided, but the same report says some 2,000 new jobs may be created, and hundreds of millions of dollars would be invested into the site. Currently, the tech site employs 15,000 to 20,000 workers.
