TONAWANDA, N.Y. (AP) — General Motors will invest $334 million in three plants in upstate New York.

The company announced the investments Wednesday at an event with Gov. Andrew Cuomo at its plant in Tonawanda, just north of Buffalo.

The money will pay for machinery needed to produce next-generation engines and other automotive components.

New York state agreed to provide up to $7 million in grants and tax breaks to support the upgrades. State officials say the company’s investment will create 67 new jobs at Tonawanda and protect more than 1,200 jobs at the plants in Tonawanda, nearby Lockport and in Rochester.

General Motors employs 4,200 people in manufacturing jobs around New York state.

GM Vice President Cathy Clegg says it’s part of a $2.2 billion General Motors plan to invest in U.S. operations.
