Event Details

TOUR AVAILABLE TO GMA MEMBERS ONLY!


This facility is the only Kia manufacturing plant in the United States, and the only automaker in Georgia.  With an annual capacity of more than 360,000 vehicles, Kia Motors Manufacturing of Georgia (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 and employs over 3,000 full time employees.

KMMG has produced more than 2.6 million vehicles since they began mass production in November 2009.  Tour attendees will see the entire manufacturing process for the Kia Sorento and Kia Optima --   from rolled metal all the way to the finished product using high tech stamping, weld shop advanced robotics, and highly automated assembly processes to produce the finished vehicle.  They produce a vehicle every 57 seconds utilizing three full shifts operating at the plant 24 hours a day/five days per week.

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.
