Gov. Nathan Deal announced recently that General Motors will open an IT Innovation Center in Roswell, creating 1,000 high-tech jobs and investing $26 million in the area.
“Roswell is excited about General Motors’ purchase from UPS of a 228,000-square-foot building on Mansell Road designed and wired for high-tech employees,” said Roswell Mayor Jere Wood. “We look forward to GM bringing good jobs and new families to our city. We thank Governor Deal, his Economic Development Office, the Roswell Business Alliance, and the North Fulton Chamber of Commerce for bringing this opportunity to Roswell.”
Roswell Business Alliance Executive Director Steve Stroud was integral to the process of bringing GM to the city, Councilwoman Nancy Diamond told Roswell Patch in December.
GM will purchase a 228,000-square-foot former UPS facility for the Innovation Center, the third of four such centers it is opening in the United States.
