In a move that is expected to bring more than three dozen new jobs to Hall County, the Dongwon Tech Corporation says it will set up a manufacturing facility and a sales office in Gainesville. Dongwon is based in South Korea and makes heating and air conditioning equipment.
“It’s a pleasure to welcome Dongwon Tech Corporation to Georgia,” says Governor Brian Kemp. “As the No. 1 State for Business eight years in a row, Georgia’s international relationships, leading workforce, and strength in critical industry sectors continue to attract businesses from halfway around the world to locate here. We’re grateful for Dongwon Tech’s investment in the Peach State.”
“Georgia has many Korean-Americans, and already many Korean conglomerates have entered the country, making it easier for Dongwon Tech to enter the country in the early stages of investment,” says Dongwon Tech CEO Cheol Woong Heo. “Georgia is a highly qualified state to supply Dongwon Tech’s high-quality products to customers in neighboring states as well as in Georgia. It was a good opportunity for Dongwon Tech to be established in Hall County, which has an established, well-equipped manufacturing infrastructure.”
