Roughly 400 jobs will be coming to Meriwether County in west Georgia.

Mando Corporation signed on to bring an automotive plant to the local industrial park.

Commission Chairwoman Nancy Jones says the impact on the local economy will be tremendous.

“Meriwether county residents are just completely elated that Mando has chosen our community to site their new plant here in Meriwether Park."

A perspective hire date has not been set but Mando says it will start hiring soon.
