KB Autosys is a Korea-based company that dedicates itself to supplying brake pads to others. They will soon be investing $38 million toward opening their first US manufacturing location. For this, they have chosen Right to Work Lone Oak, Georgia. Lone Oak is barely over 50 miles from Atlanta, so it’s just the right distance from a large city.
This new facility will also create 180 jobs. So this will be great news for Meriwether County!
From Area Development Magazine:
“We are very excited to be locating our first U.S. manufacturing operation in Meriwether County. In our search for a U.S. location, we visited several communities across the Southeast and met many good people. We learned a lot about each community and especially appreciated the southern hospitality that welcomed us. […] In the end, we believe Meriwether County is the best fit for KB Autosys, and we would like to thank the county officials and the State of Georgia for their extraordinary support. We hope to be a good and upstanding member of the business community in Meriwether County.” […]
“This announcement is further proof of the success automotive companies find here in Georgia, especially as product demand has grown. KB Autosys’ decision to open their first U.S. manufacturing facility in the Peach State is a testament to the strength of the relationship our state has developed with our Korean partners. […] I thank KB Autosys for their investment, and most importantly, for creating jobs and opportunities for hardworking Georgians in Meriwether County.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
