Seohan Auto Opening New Facility In Georgia, Investing More Than $72 Million And Creating 180 Jobs

On Tuesday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) announced that Seohan Auto Georgia, an automobile parts manufacturer, will be opening a new facility in Liberty County. The facility is projected to create at least 180 new jobs and invest over $72 million.

“The Hyundai Metaplant is and will continue to be an economic driver for the entire region, creating more jobs for hardworking Georgians in communities like Liberty County,” said Kemp. “We’re proud to welcome Seohan as the latest supplier in a growing list to invest in Georgia and look forward to the continued growth of this fast emerging sector.”

Seohan Auto Georgia Corporation is based in South Korea and is a Tier-1 automotive parts supplier for Hyundai Motor Group America. The company has manufacturing facilities around the world, multiple of which are in the United States.

“Sustained growth of the EV market over the past few years suggests that accelerated changes to the automotive market is inevitable. We believe Georgia will be the center of the EV industry, and will be a new frontier for Seohan’s future with limitless opportunities and potential,” said Jung Kee Koo, CEO of Seohan Auto Georgia Corporation. “We are very pleased to collaborate in partnership with Georgia and move towards a promising new future.”

According to a press release from Kemp’s office, “Seohan’s new facility in Georgia is scheduled to begin production in late 2024, and will be located at the Dunwoody Court Site in the Tradeport East Business Center, a Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development (GRAD) Certified site. The new manufacturing facility will produce H/shafts, axles, and brake systems for OEMs, including Hyundai Motor Group Metaplant America.”

“Building on the assets that make the automotive industry successful, Georgia is positioned as a hub for the electric mobility industry. Since 2020, more than 35 EV-related projects have announced more than $21 billion in investment and 27,800 jobs in Georgia,” the press release added.
