ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — General Motors Corp. is investing $100 million to manufacture fuel-injection technology at its Rochester plant in upstate New York, securing hundreds of existing jobs and creating 30 new ones.

The automaker says Tuesday that the factory, which employs around 800 people, got the project over a sister plant in the Midwest.

The energy-efficient Spark Ignition Direct Injection technology will be made at the plant for GM's 2013-model Gen-V truck engines, which are built in Tonawanda near Buffalo.

New York state awarded GM a $3 million capital grant and $1.8 million in jobs-program benefits toward the deal.

The Rochester plant specializes in engine management systems and related products.
