RICHMOND HILL, GA. — Hyundai Mobis, an automotive supplier based in South Korea, plans to invest $926 million for a new manufacturing facility near Hyundai’s previously announced electric vehicle and battery campus in Bryan County. Situated near the Port of Savannah, the new 1.2 million-square-foot facility will employ at least 1,500 people once fully operational. The project is located within the Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development (GRAD) Certified Belfast Commerce Park in Richmond Hill.
Hyundai Mobis will supply electric vehicle power electric systems and charging control units to the mega Hyundai plant nearby and in Montgomery, Ala., as well as the Kia plant in West Point, Ga. Hyundai Mobis is the “parts and services” arm for South Korean auto giants Hyundai, Genesis Motors and Kia. The company has had an operational base near the Kia plant since 2009. The new Bryan County facility is expected to break ground in 2023 and begin operations in 2024.
