Hyundai Mobis is investing nearly $1 billion to build an electric vehicle (EV) plant in Bryan County.

“With nearly $1 billion of investment and the creation of over 1,500 good-paying jobs, I would say Mobis is pretty special,” said chairman of the development authority for Bryan County Jon Seagraves. “We could not be more excited to welcome Mobis to our community.”

Governor Brian Kemp announced the investment from Hyundai Mobis on Nov. 22.

The nearly $1 billion investment will see a 1,200,000-square-foot EV power electric system plant constructed in Bryan County by 2024.

This is the second investment from Hyundai in less than a month. The Motor Group Metaplant America broke ground on a EV and battery manufacturing facility in late October.

“When we celebrated the groundbreaking of Hyundai’s new manufacturing facility in Bryan County, we knew it would unleash transformational job creation and investment in that entire region of our state,” said Kemp in a press release.

“As we announce the second supplier in just two weeks to locate in that area, we’re excited to see their impact on the surrounding communities and the growing list of other job creators that will soon follow,” Kemp continued.

The facility will supply over 900,000 EV power electric systems and 450,000 Integrated Charging Control Units annually. The units will be feed to:

  • The Hyundai Motor Group Metaplant America factory in Bryan County
  • The Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama factory in Montgomery
  • The Kia Georgia plant

The plant will be located at the Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development Certified Belfast Commerce Park in Richmond Hill.

“Hyundai Mobis’ investment project in Bryan County reflects an acceleration in the development of the EV supply chain in Georgia’s auto industry,” said H.S. Oh, vice president of Hyundai Mobis Electric Powertrain Business Unit.

Hyundai Mobis estimates the new facility will create 1,500 new jobs.

“We’re going to be a major production player in the EV market, and that’s going to trigger more growth within the sector. Mobis is looking forward to providing high-quality work opportunities to the growing local workforce,” said Oh.

The new plant will be an expansion of the company’s existing footprint in the state. Since 2009, Hyundai Mobis has operated a manufacturing facility in West Point. The Tier 1 supplier for Kia Georgia employs 1,200 employees.

Since 2020, more than 30 EV-related projects have contributed over $13.3 billion in investment in Georgia.
