KIA builds its future with the state of Georgia
The Kia plant in West Point, Georgia is just 70 miles from Hartsfield-Jackson
Atlanta International Airport. This kind of global access was key for executives
and company leadership who would be traveling back and forth from the

of the plant from the interstate factored into the decision. “The plant itself is
practically free, year-round advertising.”
