Korean firm Enchem is set to build two plants in Jackson County, Georgia, US, to manufacture lithium battery electrolyte and electrostatic double-layer capacitors (ELDC).
The state’s governor Brian Kemp announced the $61.35 million project, which builds on the success of the south-eastern state in attracting Korean battery giant SK Innovations.
Enchem is the first announced supplier for SK innovation, which broke ground on its $1.67 billion battery manufacturing plant in Jackson County last March.
Governor Kemp said these projects were “exactly the type of quality project that we hoped to attract when visiting Korea on our first international trip last June”.
“Enchem America is excited to build our factory in Georgia and will surely benefit from its infrastructure, transportation, and excellent weather,” said EnChem CEO Oh, Jung Kang.
