A Korean manufacturer is moving into the Oakwood South Industrial Park, bringing with it 30 new jobs and a possible $10 million investment over the next five years, according to a news release from the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce.
Jinsung TEC Inc., founded in 1982, produces heavy construction equipment parts, and the facility at 5385 Rafe Banks Drive will focus on undercarriage parts like rollers, idlers and sprockets. Idlers will be supplied to the Caterpillar facility in Athens, according to the chamber.
Hiring for the new facility is set to begin in July.
“We are very excited to make this announcement today,” said Yoojeung Ha, project manager at Jinsung TEC. “We’ve been running a small warehouse operation in Georgia for six years. Now, we are ready to expand our capability to become a full manufacturing facility.”
Hall County Board of Commissioners Richard Mecum touted the international presence at the industrial park, owned by Pattillo Industrial Real Estate, noting that other facilities in the industrial park include those from Italy, Germany, the Czech Republic and Japan.
