Kia resumes full production at Georgia plant
(Reuters) - Kia Motors Corp. resumed full production at its U.S. plant on Monday, more than a week after a fire broke out at a parts supplier.
Kia Motors suspended production at the plant in West Point, Ga., last week due to the fire, which erupted at a parts maker on March 17.
The plant, with an annual production capacity of 300,000 vehicles, produces the Optima sedan, the Sorento SUV and parent Hyundai Motor Co.'s Santa Fe SUV.
The Georgia factory was forced to suspend output after a fire damaged a nearby plant of Daehan Solution.
Daehan Solution, based in South Korea, produces parts that reduce noise, vibration and harshness, such as headliners and engine covers.
The company is a supplier to both Kia and Hyundai.Contact Automotive News
