Hyundai Industrial Opening New Facility In Georgia, Creating 100 New Jobs And Investing $24 Million

On Wednesday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced that Hyundai Industrial Co., Ltd., a global auto parts supplier, would be opening a new manufacturing facility near Newnan which will create 100 new jobs and invest more than $24 million.

“Partners like Kia and Hyundai are attracting a large network of suppliers, creating jobs and opportunity for hardworking Georgians across the entire state,” said Kemp. “These suppliers have now committed to bringing nearly 6,000 jobs to Georgia, mostly to communities outside of large urban areas, since last year’s Hyundai Metaplant announcement. We’re excited to welcome this latest addition to that growing list.”

Hyundai Industrial was established in 1978 and is headquartered in Ulsan, Korea. The company specializes in manufacturing car seats, arm rests, and head rests. 

“Hyundai Industrial has more than four decades of experience providing comfortable and safe experiences for drivers and passengers with some of the world’s biggest automotive brands,” said Mr. Woosuck Kim, Team Leader at HDI America Inc. “We are excited to be part of the e-mobility transition happening in Georgia, and we look forward to working with Coweta County to create mutually beneficial growth for the community and our future employees.”

According to a press release from Kemp’s office, “Hyundai Industrial has purchased an existing building at 83 Amlajack Way in Coweta County. The building will be retrofitted to produce arm and head rests for OEMs, including Hyundai Motor Group Metaplant America. Hyundai Industrial will focus on filling manufacturing production roles, and jobs will be posted on Indeed or www.workingUS.com when open.”

“For over a century, Georgia has fostered healthy industry practices, encouraged collaboration and innovation, and positioned the state as a leader in developing and harnessing emerging technologies for the evolving automotive and mobility industry. As the electric vehicle market continues to grow, Georgia has pursued the entire supply chain, creating more than $25.1 billion in investments and 29,000 jobs since 2020. In fiscal year 2023, job creation in the automotive industry increased by 324 percent when compared to fiscal year 2021, and suppliers attracted by Georgia’s mobility original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) resulted in over $2 billion in investment across the state in FY23,” the press release added.
