Bridging Culture at HMMA. This week I'll be at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama. It's impressive driving down Route 65 south of Montgomery and coming upon the plant. ( In fact, even more impressive is a view from the service road as one nears the plant.) 2 Million square feet of car making technology. WOW.
BTW We may soon hear of Kia Motors announcing their first American manufacturing facility. HMMA's tier one suppliers , like sister company Mobis, will also be providers to the Kia plant. The map shows the location of a number of the HMMA's Alabama tier one suppliers. One consideration for the Kia site centers on access to these suppliers.
