Hyundai Supplier Announces Expansion in Montgomery
One of the largest suppliers for Hyundai's assembly plant in Montgomery has announced plans to expand production at its own facility in Montgomery, creating more than 140 jobs to the 875 the company already has.
MOBIS Alabama officials say they will invest more than $55 million over two years for the expansion. The South Korean-based company will increase the size of its redistribution center, plastic injection facility and paint shop and build a new E-coating facility. Construction will start next month.
"The thing that makes me most appreciative is to watch a company come here, put their roots down here and make that initial investment here and then look back four or five years later and see how they have grown and prospered," Gov. Bob Riley said as the announcement was made.
The facilities will serve the Hyundai auto plant in Montgomery and the Kia auto plant under construction just across the state line in West Point, Georgia, which is about 80 miles from Montgomery.
