Kia Puts Georgia Production On Hold
Recent reports have confirmed the fact that Kia’s Georgia facility, one of the company’s main operations units, is being shut down for two days. The plant will not be in operation on Monday and Tuesday this week. The reasons behind the company’s decision is yet to be disclosed.
According to a spokesperson for the company, production is scheduled to resume at 6.30am EDT on Wednesday. Certain reports, however, at this point of time hint at the reason being a fire at a Georgia factory operated by Daehan Solution. This fact is yet to be confirmed.
The two-day shutdown is not expected to affect production significantly. The Sorento SUV and the Optima sedan are built at the Georgia facility. The Daehan Solutions unit is a $35 million manufacturing plant in Harris County, boasting of a staff strength of about 300. The company deals with interior components as well as vibration control systems.
