Fox 5 in Atlanta just reported that Kia will build a new plant in West Point, GA:
South Korean automaker Kia Motors Corp. will open a $1.2 billion plant in Georgia, creating almost 5,500 new jobs in the state, officials announced Sunday night. Cars will begin rolling off the plant’s two assembly lines in August 2008. The two million square foot plant will be in West Point, Ga., a town of 4,000 near the Alabama border. It will be Kia’s first U.S. manufacturing plant.
Good news indeed.
