Daimler AG’s Mercedes Benz USA unit will announce Tuesday it is moving its headquarters from New Jersey to the Atlanta area, a person briefed on the matter said.

The move from the company’s suburban New York City office in Montvale, N.J., is expected to impact nearly 1,000 jobs and mark the latest in a series of moves by foreign automakers. Earlier this year, Toyota Motor Corp. announced it is moving its U.S. unit corporate headquarters from Torrance, Calif., to Plano, Texas. Nissan Motor Co. in 2005 moved its North American headquarters from Gardena, Calif., to the Nashville, Tenn., area.

General Motors Co. is opening a new headquarters office for its struggling Cadillac brand in New York City, moving 30 marketing and sales employees to the Soho neighborhood in Manhattan. The office will have about 120 employees — most new — by next year.
