NVH Korea To Open New Facility In Georgia, Creating 160 Jobs And Investing $72 Million

On Thursday, Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced that NVH Korea, an automotive parts manufacturer, would be opening a new facility in Locust Grove. The project will create over 160 new jobs and invest $72 million in Henry County.

“Thanks to our reliable infrastructure network connecting partners all over the world and a great workforce, job creators can find success in every community in our state,” said Kemp. “The incredible growth of the e-mobility and battery industries in Georgia is a testament to our ability to support large suppliers like NVH Korea. We’re proud to welcome them as the latest partner in making Georgia the epicenter of the industrial revolution of our time.”

According to a press release from Kemp’s office, “NVH Korea is an automotive parts manufacturer based in the City of Ulsan and established in 1984. The company specializes in automotive noise, vibration, and heat-control parts, which it currently produces in Korea, Europe, and India. The company also operates a manufacturing facility that produces floor mats, cargo mats, and cargo trays in Georgia. The new facility will supply battery parts for electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States for manufacturers such as Hyundai Mobis, Kia Georgia, and Hyundai Motor Group.”

The new facility will be located at Gardner Logistics Park on Colvin Drive in Locust Grove. It will create the EV battery system components that protect, connect, and sense the performance of battery cells. The facility is expected to begin operations in the second quarter of 2024.

“We are pleased to announce that we have chosen the State of Georgia as our company’s first EV battery component manufacturing site. Cooperation between state agencies and our company staff has helped guide us throughout this project,” said Ja Kyum Koo, Chairman and CEO of NVH Korea. “It is the first step of our company’s effort to contribute to the electrification of the mobility industry, and we look forward to joining the community of Locust Grove and Henry County.”
