Kia Motors Receives Stamping Equipment at Expanding West Point, Georgia, Facility
"The arrival of our second stamping press is another major milestone for our plant in West Point, Georgia," said Group President and CEO of Kia Motors America and Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia Byung Mo Ahn. "KMMG will be hiring new team members to support the increased production, and the arrival of the new press is the latest example of Kia Motors' commitment to continued growth in the U.S. market by further utilizing one of the most advanced automotive manufacturing facility in the world."
Georgia's infrastructure played a key role in facilitating the transport of the equipment, which traveled from Pyeongtaek, Korea, to the Port of Savannah. Once the equipment arrived in Savannah, a fleet of trucks and trailers moved the goods across the state. Some of the machinery pieces weighed up to 170 tons.
