Linhai Powersports expands in Gwinnett

A Chinese motorsports company plans to expand in Gwinnett County, a project that will result in about 80 new jobs over five years, the company and county said in a news release.

The U.S. division of Linhai Powersports, a maker of all-terrain vehicles, scooters and other recreational vehicles, plans to expand into office space and a warehouse at Gwinnett Corporate Center. The announcement Wednesday was made during a Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce economic development tour of Asia.

This is the second of four expected jobs announcements during the 12-day visit to China and Korea.
