Automotive Parts Supplier starts Third Expansion
Halla Visteon Climate Control, builder of front end assemblies for Hyundai and Kia, has announced plans for their third expansion in Macon County. Last year Halla completed a $10 million expansion which added 50 jobs. They currently have a 290,000 square foot facility and employ over 500 and plan to add more once the project is complete.
“The facility will significantly improve quality control for HVCC products and ultimately result in new jobs in the Shorter/Macon County area,” said Shorter city clerk Harold Powell. “The expansion demonstrates HVCC's commitment to grow with Shorter.”
Doster Construction Company is the general contractor on the Halla project and KPS Group is the Architect. Doster expects completion of the project in the fall.
