West Point, Georgia Employment Numbers to Rise as Hyundai Relocates Some Production

The 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe will be produced at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia, the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports. Hyundai is moving production of the model from its facility in Montgomery, Alabama, to the Kia plant in West Point, Georgia, in the fall.
