GM to move fuel cell research from NY to Michigan
(AP)—General Motors says it will close its hydrogen fuel-cell research operation near Rochester, N.Y., and move it to Michigan.
The company says most of the 220 salaried workers in Honeoye (Hun-ee-OY) Falls, N.Y., will be offered the chance to move to GM's engine and transmission research unit in Pontiac, Mich.
Spokeswoman Kimberly Carpenter says the move will pull together all of its experts on ways to move vehicles. The company will save some money by not renewing a building lease in New York.
