The Arlington facility will consist of two manufacturing and warehouse buildings spanning more than 1.2 million square feet.
General Motors has outlined plans to build a new supplier park to help support its Arlington Assembly plant in Texas.
The facility will consist of two manufacturing and warehouse buildings, spanning more than 1.2 million square feet. The company expects the park to house up to 1,250 employees and bring 850 new jobs to Arlington.
"GM estimates nearly 600 of the new manufacturing and professional jobs created in these facilities will replace work previously done outside of the US," the company says.
GM says supplier parks located adjacent to assembly plants create significant cost savings via reduced logistics costs, higher quality direct communications and continuous improvement initiatives. The company currently benefits from supplier parks at its assembly facilities in Fairfax, Kansas; Wentzville, Missouri; Bowling Green, Kentucky; and Fort Wayne, Indiana.
