A German auto parts manufacturer will build a plant in Whitfield County in an $85 million investment.
The family-owned GEDIA Automotive Group says that the facility will bring 200 jobs to the greater Dalton area.
The facility will focus on parts for electric vehicles.
“As we are a national leader in manufacturing, logistics, and workforce training, I’m confident this family-owned business will be very pleased with their decision to join the growing electric vehicle ecosystem here in Georgia,” said Governor Kemp. “Once again, the state’s consistent investment in our Germany-based European office is paying off, and I look forward to seeing the opportunities GEDIA creates for hardworking Georgians in Whitfield County.”
GEDIA supplies lightweight structural automotive parts to Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, and other companies. Headquartered in Germany, this will mark the company’s first site in the southeast and its second facility in the United States.
GEDIA will use press hardening, tempering, and automated welding processes to produce parts for electric vehicles, and operations are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2021.
The new plant will occupy a 180,000-square-foot facility on a GRAD Certified property in Carbondale Business Park.
GEDIA will be offering opportunities for management and staff positions, highly skilled technicians, and production workers.
