Hyundai Motor Group Investing in the USA



The Hyundai Motor Group will invest $3.1 billion into its USA manufacturing operations over the next five years. This investment means more U.S. jobs and an increase in Hyundai automotive cars and component production. Hyundai currently has major automotive plants in Montgomery, AL, and West Point, GA, with a Hyundai WIA R&D Center in Farmington Hills, MI, and Hyundai WIA Machine Tool headquarters in Itasca, IL. Hyundai WIA and Hyundai WIA Machine Tool are both divisions within the Hyundai Motor Group.

"In 2016, Hyundai Motor Group sold more than 1.4 million vehicles," said a company spokesperson. "These require many automotive components that have to fit precisely together to make a performance product. Other auto manufacturers in the world have to contract for the components for their cars. Hyundai with its own machine tool division, Hyundai WIA, makes its own machine tools, which in turn make all of the components for the Hyundai and KIA vehicles."

The Hyundai WIA division of the Hyundai Motor Group is the top producer of precision machined automotive components. Hyundai WIA produces engine parts, transmission parts, steering parts and wheel and brake parts for all of the Hyundai and KIA models. These components include, but are not limited to: wheels, brake cylinders, tie rod ends, steering columns and shafts, transmission cases, torque converters, cylinder head and blocks, crank shafts and turbo charger assemblies that all come together to create the Santa Fe, Optima, Forte and Genesis.

"When machining these parts, Hyundai WIA knows that precision is key," said the spokesperson. "Automotive specifications are very strict, making consistency and precision the critical focus in Hyundai's every day manufacturing. The Hyundai WIA Machine Tool division has an extensive machine tool line-up specifically designed to make sure these parts exceed specifications at all times." Take the engine, for example. The HS6300 horizontal machining center was specifically selected to accurately and consistently machine Hyundai and KIA engine blocks. The brake disk and drum are machined on the LV450R vertical lathe. Wheels measuring up to 22.5" are machined using the LV800AW-TT vertical machine center for aluminum wheel manufacturing.

Hyundai WIA Machine Tool's product line-up consists of over 100 machine tool models ranging from horizontal and vertical machine centers to lathes and heavy-duty boring machines. Visitors to the Hyundai WIA Machine Tool headquartered in Itasca, IL, can visit the showroom and see these machine tools in action.
