Governor Nathan Deal announced this week that Hyundai Dymos is opening a manufacturing plant in West Point to supply Kia Motors Manufacturing. The facility will manufacture seats for the new Kia Sorento. Hyundai Dymos will bring a $35,000,000 investment and 350 jobs to the community. This West Point facility will allow them to take the next step in their expansion strategy in the United States. Production is slated to begin in November 2014.
“We are happy that Hyundai Dymos has chosen West Point for their location of their new manufacturing facility. We are looking forward to working with our newest industrial customer and excited about the opportunity this announcement will provide our community through job creation and investment.” says West Point City Manager, Ed Moon.
In addition to choosing to locate in West Point, Hyundai Dymos has also chosen the City of West Point as their electric provider of choice.
