Peter Thom, deputy head of GM Europe for Opel/Vauxhall production
Car producer General Motors will invest EUR 250 million in manufacture of diesel engines in its Tychy-based plant in southern Poland and expects to launch production in 2017, deputy head of GM Europe for Opel/Vauxhall production Peter Thom said at a press conference.

The factory will be upgraded in preparation for building a new all-aluminum 1.6-liter four-cylinder diesel engine for vehicles made by GM's Opel and Vauxhall divisions in Europe, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Tychy building's surface area will increase by 30% to accommodate new production and testing lines, converting the assembly facility into a full production plant.

The plant will eventually produce up to 200,000 engines annually, the official said, adding that the investment will allow the company to at least maintain the current level of employment at some 550 staff.

"The new mid-sized diesel engine family is an important part of our engine offensive," Thom said. "We appreciate the good quality and high efficiency of our Polish location and look forward to implementing this exciting project."
