Seoyon E-HWA Holds Groundbreaking Ceremony For Manufacturing Facility

On Friday, Seoyon E-HWA, a global auto parts supplier, held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new manufacturing facility in Georgia’s Chatham County.

The ceremony took place less than three months after the announcement of the facility, which will create 740 new direct and indirect jobs in the area. 

As explained in a press release from the Georgia Department of Economic Development announcing the construction, “Seoyon’s new facility will be located at the Savannah Chatham Manufacturing Center, a Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development (GRAD) Certified site. The new manufacturing facility will produce automotive interior parts such as door trims, headlining, and tailgate trims. Production is expected to begin in October 2024. More than two-thirds, or approximately 500, of the announced jobs will be permanent roles in human resources, development, quality, and production personnel.”

“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,” Georgia Governor Brian Kemp said at the time. “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.”

Kemp responded to the news of the groundbreaking ceremony on Twitter.

“We’re excited for this new chapter for Seoyon E-HWA and the Savannah-Chatham community as Georgia continues to see more jobs and investment come to all parts of our state,” Kemp wrote. “Congratulations!”
