Kia looking at West Point, GA.

Kia’s plant, if built, would cost more than $1.2 billion, making it one of the largest investments in the South by an automaker since General Motors Corp. built its Saturn facility in Spring Hill, Tenn., in 1990, Randle said.

If built, the plant could employ 2500 people according to the article.

    I like the sound of a large foreign automaker calling Georgia home, especially an Asian make since they seem to know where they are heading. What worries me is that as a state we might have given away valuable money in incentives that could have gone to more important areas for citizens like roads and schools. Maybe the results in the end justify those types of incentives, but I think it’s tough to argue against paying our teachers more and making our transportation safer.
