ATLANTA (AP) – General Motors says a new information technology center in suburban Atlanta – the third of four planned by the nation’s largest automaker – is expected to open by March and create 1,000 white-collar jobs as part of its new focus on producing software and other applications in-house.

The automaker announced that it is hiring software developers, project managers, database experts, business analysts and other information technology professionals to staff its Information Technology Innovation Center in Roswell – about 10 miles north of Atlanta.

State officials say the company has invested $26 million in the development and are calling it another step toward establishing the area as a hub for technological innovation.
