SK Innovation says it is investing almost a billion dollars into the expansion of its facility in Jackson County: SK manufactures batteries for electric cars in Commerce. The company plans to spend $940 million to 430,000 square-foot addition to its headquarters in the Commerce 85 Business Park. The expansion will mean another 600 jobs.
“SK has proven to be a great community partner,” says Jackson County Board of Commissioners Chairman Tom Crow. “We are pleased to hear that they continue to be successful in gaining market share in the electric vehicle battery business and that they continue to expand in Jackson County.”
Governor Brian Kemp said in a statement “Georgia is cementing its place as the Southeastern U.S. hub for the electric battery and vehicle market in large part thanks to SK innovation, and it is exciting to see the growth in demand for these quality products.”
