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.
