General Motors will invest $90 million to upgrade its Marion Metal Center in Grant County, the company announced Monday.

 

The money will pay for new, high-tech equipment at the 60-year-old facility where the company employs about 1,400 people, supplying metal parts for GM vehicles across North America.

 

It's the largest investment the Indiana Economic Development Corporation has announced since late May.

To paraphrase Norma Desmond, Crawfordsville is ready for its close-up. But before officials from the Lieutenant Governor’s office visit the city in the waning days of this month, we take one more opportunity to ask Mayor Todd Barton what he’s got up his sleeve – and whether he’s scouting the competition to see if there are any areas where he might gain an extra edge.
