Kia Motors supplier begins accepting applications

LAGRANGE, Ga. (AP) - Jobs will be up for grabs in Georgia again
next week.

Sewon America, a major supplier for the Kia Motors plant coming
to West Point, will begin accepting applications Monday through
Wednesday for about 400 jobs on the old campus of West Georgia
Technical College.

The company will manufacture stamped chassis and body
components, plus decorative trim pieces. It will start production
later this year at a $170 million, 420,000-square-foot plant on 65
acres in the Callaway South Industrial Park near LaGrange Callaway
Airport.

LaGrange Development Authority Chairman Diethard Lindner says
the plant could have 700 employees if Kia reaches full production
of 300,000 vehicles per year.
