DETROIT (WKZO) -- General Motors has signed a deal to buy the remaining stake of an engine plant in Poland from Isuzu Motors.  GM already owned 60-percent of the operation that produces 1.7-liter diesel motors.

The factory opened in 1999 and GM bought an interest in the plant three years later.  Over 2.5-million engines have been produced at the facility which employs 522 employees.
