Beginning in 2006, Kia made one of the biggest single foreign investments in the history of Georgia by establishing a state-of-the-art production facility in West Point. Since then, we, along with our suppliers, have helped create more than 14,000 jobs and produced more than 2.6 million vehicles.
With an annual capacity of more than 340,000 vehicles, KMMG is home of the Sorento CUV and Optima midsize sedan, two of the brand’s top selling models in the United States. This advanced manufacturing facility represents a $1.1 billion investment on a 2,200 acre site, operating 24 hours a day.
More than 90 percent of the vehicles assembled in West Point are destined for dealerships across America, which accounts for almost 40 percent of all Kia sales in the U.S.
KMMG’s goal is to be the best and most innovative automotive company in the world driven by the belief that Customer Satisfaction is Rooted in Quality. This is made possible by a team of individuals each identified as the best of the best.
