DAS, new manufacturing plant in Montgomery, Alabama

- A second plant in North America
- Manufactures HMC Santafe, two models of Kia
- Brings Hundreds of jobs to Montgomery

DAS North America plans to construct a manufacturing plant in Montgomery, Alabama. The seat components are for vehicles built at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia's plant in West Point, GA., including Hyundai's Sata Fe. The Kia Optima and Soreno are also built at that facility.

DAS first will operate at a temporary facility at the former Graham Packaging building at Hope-Hull, and will build a $50-million plant at the Montgomery Industrial  Park.

DAS executives say "We looked at more than 80 sites for our manufacturing plant including some in Auburn and Opelika-closer to the Kia plant, but  Montgomery came out on top every time"

"When we reviewed their offers and incentives here and the support, we had to go with Montgomery." says General Manager, James Uhm.
