General Motors Co.’s Dmax diesel engine joint venture with Isuzu Motors Co., is constructing a components plant in Brookville, Ohio.

The partners are investing $175 million in the facility, which is expected to open at the end of next year. About 100 people will be employed at the 251,000-sq-ft factory.

The Brookville plant will machine engine blocks and heads for the Duramax 6.6-liter diesel V-8s assembled in nearby Moraine. GM says the new facility will help it meet increasing demand for Chevrolet and GMC medium- and heavy-duty diesel-powered pickups.

GM owns 60% of the venture, and Isuzu holds the remaining 40% stake. Moraine started producing Duramax engines in 2000.
