Vehicle AC manufacturer to build Bulloch plant
Hanon Systems to create 160 jobs, invest $40 million
The Hanon Systems plant in Cary, Ohio, which is north of Columbus, is shown above. Hanon announced Tuesday they would build a plant in Bulloch County.

Bulloch County will welcome another new industry with the announcement Tuesday that a manufacturer of vehicle air conditioning systems will build a plant in Statesboro’s Gateway Regional Industrial Park.

Gov. Brian Kemp said that Hanon Systems, a global provider of “automotive thermal and energy management solutions” – air conditioning – would create 160 new jobs and invest more than $40 million in the new facility in Bulloch County.

“Georgia’s automotive and e-mobility industries continue to grow as we proudly welcome Hanon Systems to Georgia,” Kemp said. “As our state furthers its position as the EV capital of America, new jobs and opportunities like these are coming to hardworking Georgians all over the state and will continue to do so.”


South Korean-based Hanon Systems’ new facility will be built next to the Cardinal Glass plant in in Gateway and will make the AC systems for the electric vehicles that will be manufactured at the Hyundai Metaplant in Bryan County. Operations are expected to begin in May 2024.

“Statesboro-Bulloch County is honored by Hanon Systems’ decision to locate its new facility here,” said Billy Allen, chair of the Development Authority of Bulloch County. “We are excited to welcome another automotive supplier to our community, particularly one that will be working closely with the Hyundai Metaplant and the electric vehicle industry. This decision is another example of the resources offered by our community and region to help companies succeed.”
