Mitsui Kinzoku Die-Casting Technology America to open Georgia plant

Mitsui Kinzoku Die-Casting Technology America is building a $20 million facility in Griffin, Georgia. The project is expected to create 30 jobs, with the potential for more as the plant expands.

“We are honored to locate our U.S. manufacturing site in the beautiful city of Griffin,” said Hiroyuki Nakazawa, president, Mitsui Kinzoku Die-Casting Technology Co. “MKDA will strive to be a company that is rooted in the local community.”

The facility will produce automotive products, focusing on ones for electric vehicles.

“We are grateful that MKDA chose to locate this new manufacturing facility in Griffin,” Georgia Department of Economic Development commissioner Pat Wilson said. “This marks the fifth location by a Japanese company in this region in the past six years. That growth is a result of the community’s foresight, commitment and partnership in attracting significant Japanese investment in Georgia. This facility will bolster Georgia’s booming automotive industry and ensure its success in the coming years, and we are proud to work with our local economic development partners to assist great international companies in locating to Georgia.”
