NVH Korea Establishes Locust Grove, Georgia, Manufacturing Plant

Automotive parts manufacturer NVH Korea plans to establish operations in Locust Grove, Georgia. The $72 million project is expected to create 160 jobs in Henry County.

The new facility, located at Gardner Logistics Park on Colvin Drive, will supply battery parts for electric vehicles (EVs) in the U.S. for manufacturers such as Hyundai Mobis, Kia Georgia, and Hyundai Motor Group.. Production is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2024.

“We are pleased to announce that we have chosen the State of Georgia as our company’s first EV battery component manufacturing site. Cooperation between state agencies and our company staff has helped guide us throughout this project,” said Ja Kyum Koo, Chairman and CEO of NVH Korea. “It is the first step of our company’s effort to contribute to the electrification of the mobility industry, and we look forward to joining the community of Locust Grove and Henry County.”

Based in the City of Ulsan, NVH Korea specializes in automotive noise, vibration, and heat-control parts, which it currently produces in Korea, Europe, and India. NVH also operates a manufacturing facility that produces floor mats, cargo mats, and cargo trays in Georgia.

“There is an economic transformation happening in communities across Georgia as manufacturers create the jobs of the future in line with cutting-edge technologies and industry trends,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “We welcome innovators, many of which are establishing their first U.S. or e-mobility manufacturing presence, like NVH Korea. These companies enrich the local industry mix, provide well-paying jobs for Georgians, and continue to build on our already robust statewide mobility ecosystem. Many thanks to NVH Korea for selecting Georgia and congratulations to our community partners in Henry County.”

Project Manager Jacob Lee represented the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s (GDEcD) Global Commerce team in partnership with the Henry County Development Authority, Georgia EMC, and Georgia Quick Start.
