Kia Supplier DAEHAN Solution to Locate Manufacturing Facility in Harris County

Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue announced in March that Kia supplier DAEHAN Solution will locate a manufacturing facility in Harris County. The automotive components manufacturer is expected to create 300 jobs and invest $35 million in its new site. Kia and its other suppliers have announced more than 5,000 jobs in Georgia.

“DAEHAN Solution’s decision to locate in Georgia means that top-tier Kia suppliers are creating more than 2,300 jobs,” said Governor Sonny Perdue. “I am proud that Kia’s decision to choose Georgia continues to bring interest and investment to our state.”

Headquartered in Korea, DAEHAN Solution plans to build a 160,000-square-foot facility on 30 acres at the Northwest Harris Business Park in Harris County. When operational, the facility will supply NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) system engineering and interior components for Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia plant in West Point.

“DAEHAN Solution is looking forward to continuing the partnership with the state of Georgia and Harris County for mutual prosperity,” said DAEHAN Solution Chairman Hoe-Hyun Kwon. “We are very excited about this project in the Northwest Harris Business Park and plan to begin the construction process as soon as possible.”

“We are proud to welcome DAEHAN Solution to Harris County,” said Harry Lange, Harris County Commission Chairman. “Their new facility will be a terrific addition to our growing stable of Kia suppliers here in Harris County, and I look forward to them becoming a great corporate citizen.”

DAEHAN Solution is a leading manufacturer of automotive components and a key supplier of NVH system engineering in Korea. The company is committed to exceeding customer expectations with award-winning products and services through innovation and efficiency. The company has a long history as one of the top suppliers to Kia and Hyundai worldwide.
