General Motors will invest $130 million to build an enterprise data facility and add 25 high-tech jobs at its Technical Center campus in Warren, Michigan.

This new facility and other GM data centers around the world support the tools the company needs to design, build and sell the world's best vehicles through digital applications enabling all business functions, said Terry Kline, GM vice president and chief information officer.

The investment will result in an energy-efficient, state-of-the-art Information Technology (IT) Operations and Command Center that consolidates GM's IT infrastructure, reduce cost and increase energy efficiency, the carmaker said.

Today's announcement is part of the $2 billion in U.S. investment that GM recently announced for 17 facilities in eight states. This is on top of $3.4 billion invested and 9,000 jobs created or retained in the United States since mid-2009, the statement further added.
