General Motors announced recently that it will open a technology center near Atlanta at which it expects to hire about 1,000 high-tech workers.
GM said it will employ software developers, project managers, database experts, business analysts and other information technology professionals at the center, which will be the third such facility in the United States. GM plans to add another.
"Locating this center in Atlanta makes good business sense," GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott said in a news release. "We can draw from a deep pool of high tech expertise through the surrounding colleges, universities and talent residing in the area."
GM's other U.S. technology facilities employ than 700 IT specialists in Austin, Texas, and Warren, Mich.
GM said the Atlanta Innovation Center will be in Roswell.
