January 3, 2013 by Sarah
A new casting facility is to be built by the Mando Corporation, situated around 60 miles outside Atlanta. The Georgia-based auto manufacturer will create 660 jobs by 2020 with the construction of the new $80m facility.
According to a release issued by the office of Governor Nathan Deal, the governor visited the Seoul headquarters of Mando during 2011. During this visit, the Governor learned more about the plans for expansion by Mando and issued a statement which said that the expansion of the Korean company would benefit Georgia, making it a number one choice for businesses in the area. The new casting facility will be situated in Meriwether Industrial Park, covering 317,000 square foot of space. The construction of the facility will be used to support production of automotive parts which are energy efficient. Although the Governor’s statement said that much of the casting industry had moved overseas since the 1980s, the new Mando facility will provide an improved service to customers in the United States, which includes Kia, Chrysler, and Hyundai.
The company will work alongside the Environmental Protection Division to ensure best practices are followed for a clean process. Once the new facility is up and running, the services of Georgia Quick Start will be utilized to provide training to its new employees, ensuring a high standard. Once the company is completed, local printing services may also be made use of to recruit employees who will be offered a high standard of training by the company.
