Shinwon USA Expands Operations to Charlotte, Michigan

Growing Auto Manufacturing Supplier Adds New Jobs to Lansing, Michigan Region’s Mobility Industry 

CHARLOTTE, Mich. (Aug 17, 2021) — Shinwon USA, an emerging auto parts manufacturer in the US, will open its newest operation at 400 Parkland Dr. in Charlotte. Shinwon USA launched US operations in 2019, with approximately 28,000 square feet in Livonia, under its Korean-based parent company, Shinwon Precision. Now, Shinwon USA is growing its molding and assembly operations and serving multiple customers out of a new 50,000 square foot facility in the Charlotte Combs Industrial Park.

Shinwon USA intends to kickstart pre-production operations in September 2021 by hiring 18 to 30 new positions, ranging from general labor/assembly, machine operators, quality engineers and production managers.

“Shinwon USA is thrilled to open the doors at our second location in Charlotte, MI,” said Shinwon USA General Manager Gina Blackburn. “We look forward to growing our team as we fill the variety of available positions in the coming weeks.”

The city of Charlotte’s manufacturing industry is propelling forward at a tremendous pace with Shinwon’s expansion now and Shyft Group’s massive hiring expansion project announced in January 2021.

“I am very pleased to welcome Shinwon USA to Charlotte,” said Charlotte Mayor Michael Armitage. “We appreciate Shinwon’s confidence in our community and our workforce. Successes like these demonstrate Charlotte’s important role as a manufacturing hub for Mid-Michigan, and as a strong location for the automotive and vehicle industry.”

“We are excited to welcome Shinwon USA to the tri-county region in Charlotte. To have a new manufacturing company enter our market signals our national and international peers that our region’s growth trajectory is positive, steady and promising,” said Bob Trezise, president and CEO of LEAP. “This is a project that naturally evolved toward our region. LEAP, Capital Area Michigan Works! and the city of Charlotte were pleased to put the finishing touches on this important project for Charlotte and our region.”
