Leader of Georgia's Kia plant dies while traveling - Atlanta Journal Constitution

Monday, June 13, 2016

We will miss him,” the ex-governor said of Jackson in a written statement, “but his legacy will continue to live on as long as Kia is building cars and employing Georgians.”Jackson, 59, of Opelika, Ala., near West Point at the state line, was headed off on a trade mission Friday, traveling with officials from the Georgia Department of Economic Development, including Commissioner Chris Carr.Randy Jackson, seen here speaking to the media at the Kia construction site in 2008, died Friday while traveling to South Korea. The plant began production in 2009 on a 2,200-acre site in West Point. CHRIS MEGERIAN / CHMEGERIAN@AJC.COMGov. Nathan Deal’s chief of staff, Chris Riley, was in the delegation, too.The party landed in Seattle to change planes.

Emergency personnel spent about 45 minutes trying to revive him.Fryer said she has spoken with Jackson’s executive assistant, who told her about the death.“I think everybody’s in shock right now and disbelief,” said Fryer, who has worked with Jackson ever since Kia hired him as the plant’s first American employee in 2007.In the mid-2000s, West Point was just another dying city in flyover country, drained of life by a rash of textile plant closings. Then the Koreans came, and everything changed.Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia has since become a massive engine in the state economy, employing more than 3,000 people with three production shifts. The plant builds the Sorento CUV and the Optima mid-size sedan.Suppliers brought thousands more jobs to Georgia and Alabama. New hotels and restaurants sprang up, along with a Wal-Mart distribution center and a branch campus of Columbus State University.Jackson wasn’t involved in recruiting Kia to Georgia, which took tense negotiations and hundreds of millions of dol

Center. She was later flown to UAB Hospital where she died of her injuries.Ajin USA makes parts for Hyundai and Kia. There are about 700 workers employed there. Alliance and Joynus, with offices in Opelika, provide about 250 temporary workers to Ajin USA, the department stated.In a statement, Ajin USA said the company will "continue to cooperate and work with OSHA throughout the investigation." Ajin said it cooperated with OSHA's investigation, provided full access to the plant and all employees for interviews, and copies of all documents, drawings and photos requested. The company also conducted an internal investigation."We at Ajin remain deeply saddened over the tragic accident that took the life of one of our valued teammates," the statement said. "Our deepest sympathy and prayers are with her family and loved ones during this most difficult time.
