The Georgia Department of Labor says it will assist auto parts supplier Mando America with hiring for its new plant near Hogansville, Ga., north of Columbus. A job fair will take place 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesday at the senior center there. It is located at 304 Church St.
Mando America announced last fall its plans to open the $200 million plant, employing 200 initially, then ramping that up to more than 400 within a few years. The new facility is scheduled to open in October.
The company makes automotive brake, steering and suspension systems. Its customers include Kia, Hyundai, Chrysler and General Motors.
The factory will need tool setters, quality auditors, incoming inspectors, material handlers, accounting clerks, computer numerical control technicians, human resource clerks, administrative environmental technicians, maintenance technicians and machine operators. It also plans to hire accountants, coordinate measuring machine programmers, machine engineers, production supervisors, and software quality assurance engineers.
