GM adds 850 more jobs in Arlington, expands to Six Flags mall site
The move is “a dream come true” for Arlington’s economy, Mayor Jeff Williams said.
“It enables us to redevelop a piece of property that was no longer economically viable,” he said about the former Six Flags mall, which was sold in 2012 and razed last year. In addition to creating jobs, the deal cements the city’s partnership with GM, Williams said.
Some 600 of the new jobs would replace work that would otherwise be done outside the country, said Steve Kiefer, GM’s senior vice president of global purchasing and supply chain.
