With a US$23 million investment and the creation of 600 new jobs, the Korean company Yongsan Automotive Parts Interior is considering to install its plant in Ciudad Juarez and produce there the garments of seats for KIA vehicles that are assembled in Monterrey.
Yoon-Joon-Hyuk and two more executives of the Korean company visited this border for a few days, and toured the Bermudez and Intermex Industrial Parks. Due to the fast installation it must be located in ready-to-use facilities, reported the Director of Economic Development of the Municipality, Juan Ubaldo Benavente. Employers look for the best conditions to establish their company, so that after Ciudad Juarez, they will analyze Gomez Palacio, Durango and Saltillo, Coahuila. Even though the automaker KIA is in Monterrey, they keep Ciudad Juarez as their first choice. Once established in this border, Yongsan will begin operations with about 300 jobs this year and 300 more jobs by 2016.
