The announcement was made this morning by Gov. Sonny Perdue.
"This new plant will create approximately 400 jobs for
Georgians, with the potential to double the number of jobs in the years to come," said Perdue. "It is a tremendous win for our state that reinforces Georgia's status as a center for the automobile manufacturing industry."
The new 250,000 square foot plant will be built on a 300-acre tract in Tallapoosa, in Haralson County, and will reache an annual capacity of 300,000 automatic
transmissions. It is scheduled to begin production in fall 2006.
