DETROIT (AP) -- A General Motors spokesman says the company is planning to open an information technology center in suburban Atlanta and is looking to create about 1,000 jobs in the area.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal is expected to announce the development Thursday at Georgia Tech University.

The move is part of a larger push by the automaker to hire up to 10,000 technology professionals over a three- to five-year period to produce GM software and other electronic applications in-house, as opposed to buying the products from outside companies.

General Motors Co. operates information technology centers in Warren, Mich., and Austin, Texas, and representatives say entry-level software engineers make between $60,000 and $70,000. The company spokesman says the facility in Roswell, Ga., is expected to open in March and hiring will begin immediately.
