Pasadena, CA (January 3, 2012)- Georgia Governor Nathan Deal recently announced that Mando Corporation, a Korean auto manufacturer, will be adding a new casting facility to its existing operations in the state. With an estimated 660 jobs to be created by 2020, the auto supplier’s announcement is the latest sign of growth in the industry and reflects current manufacturing job trends reported by Granted.com.
Granted’s jobs data report points to an overall growth in the manufacturing industry. Despite slow growth in November, the Granted.com data showed that the manufacturing sector picked up towards the end of the year. Over 22,000 manufacturing jobs have been listed nationwide on the site as of this month, up from the previous month’s numbers. While most of the Georgia’s 704 manufacturing jobs have been concentrated primarily in Atlanta, companies in some of the larger suburban areas, like Marietta and Alpharetta, are hiring as well. The end-of-the-year growth came on the heels of a difficult year for the state’s manufacturing industry.
Mando Corporation plans to expand its already existing manufacturing facility located in Meriwether County. In his statement, Governor Deal announced that the expansion would result in an estimated 660 manufacturing jobs being created by 2020.According to the news release, the jobs that will be created as a result of the new facility will make Mando Corporation the largest employer in Meriwether County. The news came as a real boon to a state hit hard in the manufacturing sector.
The manufacturing sector has strengthened as the housing market continues to rebound and construction spending picks up. Harrison Barnes, CEO of Granted.com, confirmed these market trends this week: “I will be honest when I say that, overall, this has not been a strong year for manufacturing. Hiring has been down for most of the year, but it is beginning to pick up again as other related sectors, like housing and construction, continue to improve. With fingers crossed, we’re expecting manufacturing to pick up 2013.Mando’sexpansion in Georgia is the latest sign of that.”
