Not too bad for Bibb County

Jobs are coming.

A Korean tire manufacturer planning to invest at least $165 million here is headed to Bibb County, according to several news reports.

South Korean-based Kumho Tire Co. Inc. will be coming to the area, according to Reuters news agency, Tire Review magazine, a Korean newspaper and the London Stock Exchange’s Regulatory News Service (RNS).

Of course, what does it say about Macon that it’ll be the third international location for Kumho tires, when the other two locations are China and Vietnam. Maybe they were confused by the whole red state v. blue state thing.
