During the Opelika City Council Meeting, Opelika Mayor Gary Fuller announced that Hanwha Advanced Materials America, LLC is once again expanding its Opelika facility in the Northeast Opelika Industrial Park. The company will be investing nearly $20.3 million in new manufacturing equipment for their expanding EV business. They will also be adding 50 new jobs over the next three years. This new capital investment represents the latest of multiple expansions since Hanwha first located to Opelika and will increase the company’s total investment to nearly $157 million.

According to Mayor Gary Fuller, Hanwha has continually invested in new equipment and building improvements. They have far exceeded their initial commitment of 150 jobs. The addition of the new 50 jobs will bring Hanwha’s employment level close to 500. Fuller said, “When existing industries continue to invest in our community, it brings me a great sense of pride. It says a lot when businesses do this. We are happy to have allies like Hanwha in Opelika and wish them continued success.” 

Opelika Economic Development Director, Lori Huguley CEcD added, “Hanwha continues to be a valued partner in Opelika. They have continually grown their operations with additional investment and facilities since their initial announcement to come to Opelika in 2005. We are honored to have them in our community.”

Hanwha Plant Manager, Chris Hickman noted, “We feel both fortunate and proud to be part of such a wonderful community. Our success would not be possible without the support from this great City and the pro-growth environment it fosters. Also, our team members, we have the greatest team members in the world! Were it not for their hard work and dedication, success and growth would not be possible.” Click link provided for information about Hanwha Advanced Materials America,: http://www.hanwhaus.com/
