Gov. Nathan Deal said Wednesday that Hanil E Hwa Interior Systems is planning to add 80 jobs at its facility in LaGrange. Officials say the company is investing $5.5 million in the expansion, which is expected to happen over the next two years.
Deal says the expansion is the result of a delegation from LaGrange traveling to Korea recently to meet with the company's corporate leaders.
Deal says the company moved to Georgia in 2010 as part of the Kia Motors supplier network and produces several components, including interior systems, panels and bumpers.
