BEING HERE MAKES US BETTER.
When we decided to begin manufacturing in the United States, we were confident of success. There's a growing demand for Kia cars and CUVs and we wanted to better serve that need, but you have to do more than that to succeed. You need to surround yourself with quality people. Like the folks at our Georgia facility.
We believe we're building more than great cars in the U.S.-because we are. Our family has grown to more than 3,000 talented team members at the plant and another 7,500 at nearby suppliers-that's more than 10,000 new jobs-and we are committed to developing the most efficient, environmentally sustainable and sophisticated manufacturing facility in the country. We're creating something truly special, but we're just getting started.
Although we're producing some of the most technologically advanced vehicles around, we're doing it in accordance with the Kia Way, which is our one-system/one-team approach that's built on trust, mutual respect and open communication among all team members.
We're in it for the long haul and that means not only do we take great care to look after the members of our Kia family, but we also want to ensure we look after the environment. After all, it's everyone's home.
WE'RE DOING IT TOGETHER.
There's no way Kia would be where it is today without the vision and can-do attitude of those who imagined what could be possible: our talented and dedicated workforce. Collectively, we're igniting opportunity through southwestern Georgia. More than 10,500 jobs have been created between Kia and our nearby suppliers, and with those new jobs, area businesses are enjoying new-found prosperity. It's the bustling coffee shop, the new homes being built, the dry cleaners down the street and countless others that weren't there before.
With most of those jobs added in and around our home in West Point, Georgia, Kia and our extended family of suppliers are making a significant economic contribution to the community that in turn creates a bright future for generations to come.
QUALITY STARTS WITH QUALITY PEOPLE.
High-quality cars don't just happen. It takes the skill and dedication of our team members along with a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility to build vehicles with a remarkable 10 Year/100,000 Mile warranty program. Now that's confidence.
That confidence is a direct byproduct of our company-wide, unwavering commitment to world-class quality. It's a trait that's deeply embedded in the Kia Way, our cultural drive for constant improvement, and for our customers, it ensures an ownership experience that is second to none.
But the most important benefit of committing to quality? Safety. Nothing is more important or more essential to the success of our team and the company as a whole than maintaining a safe working environment.
