Newnan Times-Herald: Yamaha Hiring 300 More at Newnan Facility

Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation of America is hiring more than 300 new contract employees at its Newnan facility, according to the Newnan Times-Herald, to assist in assembly line functions.

Yamaha has used its foreign-trade zone (FTZ) benefits to support exports of golf carts and U.S. and export sales of personal watercraft since 1989. In 1998, the company began using the program to support production of ATVs. In 2011, the company began to transfer production of nearly all its mid- and large-engine ATVs models to the U.S. from overseas facilities into its FTZ facility in Newnan.

Today, about 30 percent of the parts and components used to make its products in the FTZ come from Georgia-based suppliers; another 20 percent comes from other U.S.-based suppliers.
