ROCHESTER, NY- General Motors will invest $100 million to add 30 jobs and purchase tooling and equipment to make future automotive components at its GM Components Holdings Rochester operations.

"This investment in our manufacturing operations will enable us to produce a new generation of fuel-efficient small block car and truck engines," says Cathy Clegg, GM vice president of Labor Relations. "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."

Four product lines will be enhanced: the integrated air module; a new high-pressure fuel rail; a new lifter oil manifold assembly; and a new direct injection injector. These parts will be shipped to GM Powertrain plants in Tonawanda, NY, St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada and Ramos Arizpe, Mexico.

"This investment stems from teamwork with New York's Empire State Development Corporation, Rochester Gas and Electric and a new agreement with the UAW," Clegg said. "Through these types of successful partnerships, we're competitively keeping this work in the United States and maintaining jobs right here in Rochester."

The 30 new jobs will be added to an existing workforce of 826 hourly and salaried employees at the GMCH Rochester Operations facility.
