GM set to announce investment at Indiana factory

MARION, Ind. (AP) – General Motors officials are set to announce what is expected to be a multimillion dollar investment at an Indiana factory.

GM has scheduled a news conference for Monday afternoon at its Marion Metal Center, where the company says it has about 1,600 workers.

Marion city officials tell Indianapolis television stations that GM will be spending more than $80 million over the next decade on new equipment, which will help retain jobs at the factory.

GM says the Marion plant supplies stampings and sheet metal assembly for cars, vans, trucks and SUVs to GM assembly plants throughout North America.
