ARLINGTON, TEXAS – May 5, 2016 – Bob Moore Construction has broken ground on a new regional financial servicing center in San Antonio, Texas for GM Financial Credit, Inc.
The new servicing center is the fifth in North America for GM Financial. The call center will sustain the continued growth of GM Financial and its parent company, General Motors, servicing hundreds of thousands of customers all across the United States from its central US location.
The new facility is projected to create up to 700 jobs to San Antonio and potentially drive more than $300 million in total economic output in the first 10 years of operation. The project received a $2.5 million grant from the Texas Enterprise Fund, as well as tax incentives from the city of San Antonio and Bexar County.
A formal groundbreaking for the call center took place April 11, 2016 at the new building’s location in the Westover Hills addition of San Antonio. Members of GM Financial’s corporate leadership team, including CEO Dan Berce, were on hand for the event. Also in attendance were notable city, county and state officials and community leaders, including Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
“Texas’ welcoming business climate of low taxes and low regulations has propelled the Lone Star State to be a leader in job creation,” said Governor Abbott. “I am proud that GM Financial has chosen San Antonio as the site of its next financial servicing center, investing tens of millions of dollars in the Texas economy.”
Bob Moore Construction is the general contractor for GM Financial’s new service center. San Antonio’s RVK Architects is the architect and Pape-Dawson Engineers, Inc. is the civil engineer.
The new building will include 100,000 SF of upscale office and call center facilities over two floors. The building will showcase dramatic interior and exterior finishes, a large employee cafeteria, significant telecommunications infrastructure and 720 parking spaces for employees and guests.
“We’re very proud to be a part of the new GM Financial service center project,” said Ed McGuire, President of Bob Moore Construction. “The project features a remarkable collaboration between local and state government and business participants, and will create remarkable new financial opportunities for San Antonio. This will be a tremendous opportunity for us to demonstrate our ability to deliver a superior quality office and call center facility as we help to expand the Texas economy.”
The building is projected to go into operations in mid-2017.
