Following the success of models such as the Spark, Aveo and Cruze, General Motors have announced that they will be expanding their design center in South Korea.
GM will be doubling the size of their global design center in Incheon with new modeling studios, display spaces and areas for creative work. GM has about 200 employees at their design center in Korea, a group responsible for an extensive range of GM global vehicle programs.
GM promises that the expansion will adhere to the company's corporate philosophy of environmental design practices, using technologies to reduce water and energy usage as well as maximize the use of recycled materials.
“The GM Korea Design Center plays a very important role in GM’s Global Design organization,” said Ed Welburn, GM's Vice President of Global Design.“Its expansion will create an environment for team members to dream, create and develop design strategies for GM’s future product portfolio.”
GM Korea Design Center is one of seven around the world, the others being located in the United States, Germany, China, Australia, Brazil and India.
