The site is a few miles east of the future $7.6 billion Hyundai electric vehicle and battery factory in Bryan County, where plug-in Hyundai, Genesis and Kia models are expected to roll off the assembly line as soon as late 2024.
Daechang will be adding assembly line positions, mechanical engineers and electrical engineers, according to the release. The company will be the third Hyundai Metaplant supplier to open with the Savannah Chatham Manufacturing Center. Hyundai suppliers have announced several new factories in communities surrounding the future EV and battery plant.
“To date, suppliers for this project alone reach at least nine counties, and we’re excited to add Daechang Seat Corp. USA to our growing manufacturing base centered around Chatham County and the Savannah region,” Kemp said in the release.
