Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal says a Korean auto manufacturer plans to build a new casting facility at its manufacturing complex in west Georgia, creating 660 jobs by 2020.
Mando Corp. announced plans in 2011 to construct its existing manufacturing facility in Meriwether County.
Deal said in a statement Friday that it selected the west Georgia site for an expansion involving the new casting facility after a competitive search.
Deal said that with the expansion, Mando will become the largest employer in Meriwether County.
The governor said the new 317,000-square-foot casting facility will be in the Meriwether Industrial Park in the Hogansville area, about 60 miles southwest of Atlanta.
