Over 700 New Manufacturing Jobs Coming To Georgia

On Tuesday, Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced that Seoyon E-HWA, a global auto parts supplier, would be opening a new manufacturing facility in Chatham County, which will create 740 new direct and indirect jobs and invest almost $76 million. 

“When I announced the largest economic development project in Georgia history last year, I promised it was just the start in bringing even more jobs and opportunity to hardworking Georgians,” said Kemp. “As we work to ensure our state is the e-mobility capital of the nation, projects like this will continue to choose the No. 1 state for business and benefit communities in just about every zip code of Georgia.”

The new facility will be located at the Savannah Chatham Manufacturing Center, and is expected to begin producing automotive interior parts as early as October 2024. Of the 740 jobs the facility will create, about 500 are expected to be permanent roles in human resources, development, quality, and production personnel. 

“Seoyon E-Hwa is an automobile manufacturer in various countries such as Korea, Europe, and India. With our experience in developing and producing parts, it is an honor to be able to supply electric vehicle parts in Chatham County, Georgia,” said Seoyon E-Hwa Chairman Mr. Ryu Yang-seok. “With the establishment of Seoyon E-Hwa Savannah, we hope that it will not only provide new jobs in the region but also contribute to making Savannah a central city for automobile development and production. For that, Seoyon E-Hwa will do its best to cooperate with the local government continuously.”
