General Motors announced it will create 850 new jobs in North Texas with the arrival of a new supplier park.
The 1.2 million square-foot facility, known as the Arlington Logistics Center, will take up two warehouses to be built on the old Six Flags Mall site across the highway from the GM Assembly Plant.
The Arlington Logistics Center will work on supplying flooring, instrument panels and other materials for automakers.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Senator Ted Cruz was on hand for the announcement Friday. He praised General Motors for bringing the park to Arlington.
"Of those 850 new jobs, 600 of those jobs are coming back to America from overseas. That is a major accomplishment and we are grateful," Cruz said.
GM is also in the middle of a $1.4 billion expansion at its Arlington plant.
