Georgia’s Korean International Trade Representatives visited SK Battery America’s construction site in Jackson County, GA so they could see the site first-hand.

The Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Korea Office was a vital part of SK Innovation’s decision to locate in Georgia.  John Scott, the Director of Economic Development for Jackson County, Georgia stated “the amount of support the Korean Office (GDEcD) provided during our negotiations with SK Innovations was incredible.  Having a team on the ground, in Korea made all the difference!”
