General Motors Financial has purchased a 240,000-square-foot building in Arlington to expand its nearby operations center. The facility is on 22 acres near Interstate 20 and Collins Street and will accommodate 800-900 employees, most of them new hires over the next two to three years.

GM Financial will use the new space for operations and as a training and conference center, the company said in a news release.

GM Financial, whose headquarters are in downtown Fort Worth, said it would begin moving into the building within “the new few months” but expected renovations would take 24 months to finish. The company said renovations will include upgrading the facade, parking lot and interior of the building, which formerly housed a customer service center for a major financial institution.

“The purchase of this building demonstrates the continued growth and expansion that GM Financial has experienced during the past three years,” CEO Dan Berce said in the release. “We have more than doubled our employee base in North America and are pleased to have acquired this additional office space in such close proximity to our existing operations center.”

The building is one block east of two buildings now occupied by nearly 2,150 GM Financial employees and used for operations and customer service.

GM Financial, which employs 4,600 people in North America and 6,200 worldwide, also has customer service centers in Chandler, Arizona; Huntersville, North Carolina; and Peterborough, Ontario, in Canada. The company has 17 credit centers in the U.S. and Canada.
