Manufacturing Georgia, Inc. (KMMG) Thursday celebrated as the one millionth vehicle – a
snow white pearl 2014 Sorento SXL – rolled off the assembly line at the West
Point, Ga. automobile manufacturing facility.
Representing an initial investment of $1 billion, mass
production of the Sorento CUV began at KMMG on November 16, 2009. Together
with on-site and local suppliers, the plant is responsible for the creation of
more than 11,000 jobs in West Point and the surrounding region. A $100
million expansion completed in early-2012 increased annual capacity to 360,000
vehicles and the Optima mid-size sedan, which was added to the line in 2011,
has been Kia's best-selling vehicle in the U.S. for 19 consecutive months.
"Building one million vehicles in less than four years
is a tremendous achievement and one that each one of our more than 3,000 team
members can take great pride in," said Byung Mo Ahn, Group President and CEO
for Kia Motors America and Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia. "People are
the heart and soul of this company, and our team members' commitment to world
class quality is one of the major driving forces behind Kia's unprecedented
sales and market share growth in the U.S. over the last few years."
The one millionth Sorento will
be allocated to one of Kia Motors America's more than 765 dealerships
