Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama’s Vision & Mission Statements
HMMA Mission Statement:
“To be an innovative manufacturer of current and future mobility solutions.”
HMMA Vision Statement:
“HMMA is a place that inspires all of us to bring the best Hyundai vehicles to life.”
On Friday, May 20, 2005, Chung Mong-koo, chairman and chief executive officer of Hyundai Kia Automotive Group, and Alabama Governor, Bob Riley, gathered with elected officials to celebrate the grand opening of Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama, LLC (HMMA).
“This new manufacturing facility reaffirms Hyundai’s commitment toward investing in the U.S. economy, as well as its commitment toward U.S. consumers,” said Chairman Chung. “American consumers have recognized Hyundai’s quality, and this plant will enable us to better serve them.”
The facility marked the official start of production with its first saleable 2006 Sonata in May 2005. Currently, the plant assembles Sonata and Elantra sedans and the Santa Fe SUV. HMMA is capable of producing up to 399,500 vehicles per year at full capacity.
HMMA’s three engine shops make the Smartstream G2.5 GDI, G1.6 T-GDI, G2.0 Atkinson, G2.5 GDI, and G2.5 T-GDI engines. These engines are used in vehicles manufactured at HMMA as well as vehicles manufactured at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia in West Point, Ga.
The $1.8 billion facility is Hyundai’s first and only U.S. manufacturing plant, employing approximately 3,000 team members with high-paying jobs and full benefits. Additionally, more than 72 suppliers have located businesses throughout North America to support the Hyundai plant. Altogether, HMMA and its suppliers have created more than 14,000 jobs in Alabama. HMMA’s total economic impact is approximately $4.8 billion per year.
The 3.4-million square-foot manufacturing plant resides on 1,744 acres of land and includes a stamping facility, weld shop, paint shop, vehicle assembly shop, a two-mile test track and three engine shops.
Diversity is a priority at Hyundai. We recognize that diversity is not a program, but an ongoing process. Hyundai is applying that philosophy to our overall diversity efforts in Alabama.
HMMA aims to employ a diverse workforce that is representative of Alabama and the community. By having team members from a variety of backgrounds, ages, races, experiences, values, perspectives and beliefs, HMMA will create stronger teams and be a better company. Hyundai also will work with local civic, business, community and political organizations to truly become a viable resource to the community.
At Hyundai, we thrive on growth. To help make this a reality, we are recruiting, retaining and developing a diverse workplace. By valuing each individual and focusing on a common goal, our team members will produce quality cars while enjoying a positive work environment.
