660 new jobs will be created in west Georgia’s Meriwether County thanks to a Korean automotive parts supplier.

Mando Corp. will invest 80 million dollars in a new facility to produce energy-efficient automotive parts, making it the largest employer in the county according to the Governor's office.

The company is working with the state’s Environmental Protection Division to develop a high-tech, clean process.

Governor Nathan Deal called on Mando at its Seoul headquarters during his business mission to Korea in the fall of 2011. The deal was announced Friday.
