A new GM, one of the most important automakers in the world, is moving to California to build a massive assembly plant in the Bay Area, sources told The American Conservatives.
Sources familiar with the company’s plans tell The American the plant will employ 1,000 people and create tens of thousands of jobs in the state.
The California plant will be in the San Fernando Valley, about 75 miles north of Los Angeles.
GM’s announcement follows a series of moves by the company to expand its presence in the United States.
In March, it announced plans to add 600 assembly jobs in South Carolina.
In October, the company announced plans for a $3.5 billion factory in the Texas city of El Paso.
Last week, GM said it would open a new facility in Michigan, adding more than 4,000 jobs.
The company has said that the move will create tens to hundreds of thousands more jobs.
The announcement comes just weeks after the company moved its plant in Mexico from Mexico City to Monterrey, Mexico, and announced plans last week to build its new assembly plant on the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona.
The plant, which will create an estimated 3,000 construction jobs, will also employ more than 300 people.
President Donald Trump has been a vocal supporter of GM, praising the automaker’s commitment to manufacturing jobs and boosting the company as a vehicle maker.
Since Trump took office in January, the auto industry has seen a dramatic rise in auto exports, which totaled $3 trillion in 2016, up from $1.7 trillion in 2015.
