Hyundai will locate logistics in West Point
WEST POINT, Ga.— Hyundai Glovis Georgia, a logistics services company for the automotive sector, will open a parts consolidation center in West Point. The project will create up to 190 jobs over four years, according to a recent news release from the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDED).
The company will work with a general contractor to develop a 310,080-square-foot sub-assembly and sequencing facility in the Northwest Harris Business Park. The facility will be used to assemble and distribute components used in automotive manufacturing.
“We look forward to expanding our operations in Georgia and are appreciative of the support that we have received from West Point, Harris County and the state of Georgia,” said Hyundai Glovis Georgia Chief Operating Officer Hong Kee Rhee.
Yoonie Kim, senior project manager on the international investment team at the GDED, assisted Hyundai Glovis Georgia on behalf of the state, along with the City of West Point Development Authority and Georgia Electric Membership Corp. Transwestern represented the company during the site selection process.
“The automotive sector has grown significantly in Georgia over the past few years,” said GDED Commissioner Chris Carr. “Our competitive business climate, which includes a solid network of suppliers, direct access to leading original equipment manufacturers and an interconnected transportation infrastructure, create an ideal place for leading companies such as Hyundai Glovis Georgia to grow.”
