    Thumbs up Yamaha to move Japan ATV production to Georgia

    Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd. will move its remaining ATV production from Japan to Newnan, Ga., starting this month.

    The company is expected to make a formal annoucment May 18, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

    The production capacity of Yamaha Motorís Japanese subsidiary -- Yamaha Motor Powered Products Co. Ltd. -- will be integrated into Yamaha Motorís U.S. subsidiary based in Newnan, Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation of America.

    The company says the move is intended to optimize manufacturing capacity and improve productivity. The move puts ATV production in the country with the greatest demand. It should be complete by 2013.

    The Newnan plant manufactures ATVs ranging in engine sizes from 250cc to 421cc. The production transfer will increase the facilityís production lineup to models with up to 700cc engines. The Newnan plant will also continue to manufacture golf carts, personal watercraft and SSVs.

    The Newnan plant has more than 1,100 employees, and Yamaha to add up to 200 more on the near horizon and as many as 1,000 jobs when the facility reaches full capacity.

    Yea this is definitely good for the area. There is also the Kia plant on I85 close to West Point that brought in a lot of people.

    Yes it really is looking good for Ga. Looks like we are getting the new Porsche NA Headquarters in Hapeville with a "race track" also.
