SAVANNAH, GA—Seoyon E-HWA, a global automotive supplier, will invest $76 million to build a new assembly plant here to make interior and exterior auto parts. 

The new plant is expected to generate 740 new jobs. It will be the company’s second facility in the state.

“With its second Georgia facility, Seoyon is committing to nearly doubling the number of jobs it supports in the state and extending its partnership with our business community,” says Pat Wilson, Georgia’s Department of Economic Development commissioner.

The news came less than a year after Hyundai Motor Group announced plans to build its first U.S. electric vehicle and battery manufacturing facilities in Georgia, creating 8,100 new jobs.

“As anticipated, Hyundai’s new EV facility is drawing an experienced and dedicated supplier network to the region, adding to the state’s industry expertise and shaping a larger skilled workforce,” says Wilson.

Seoyon supplies door trim, head-liners, seats, bumpers and other parts to numerous OEMs, including Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, Ford and Volkswagen.
