General Motors announced Tuesday morning it will invest $167 million to a previously announced $183 million pledge and create or retain about 1,800 jobs at the Spring Hill assembly plant.
According to the release, the new investment is for two projects:
An additional $40 million added to the earlier announced $183 million investment to support a future mid-size vehicle program, bringing the new total investment to $223 million. This program is expected to create or retain approximately 1,000 jobs.
A second mid-size vehicle program with an investment of $127 million that will create or retain approximately 800 jobs.
In 2011, GM promised it would reopen the Spring Hill auto assembly line and add two mid-sized models in 2014.
