General Information HMMC

Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Czech Company based in the Industrial Zone of Nošovice was founded on 7th July 2006. An agreement on the highest foreign investment in the history of the Czech Republic was concluded by representatives of the Czech Republic, Moravian-Silesian region, CzechInvest agency and Hyundai Motor Group in Korea one year earlier.


The whole construction was done in record-breaking time – since the erection of the first pillar in April 2007 it took only 18 months to build the plant. Since the very beginning of construction, respect for the environment has been one of our highest priorities. More than 1,000 matured trees in the HMMC area were not cut down but replanted using sophisticated technology.


HMMC is the very first Hyundai plant on the European continent and it is justly called by professionals one of the most modern automotive plants in Europe. All models produced in HMMC (Hyundai i30, Hyundai i30 wagon, Hyundai i30 3-dr, Hyundai ix20 and HyundaiTucson) has been specially developed for the European market at Hyundai Technical Center in Rüsselsheim, Germany, to match the high requirements of local customers expecting quality, safety and attractive design.


By launching the three-shift operation in September 2011 HMMC reached its full production capacity of 300,000 vehicles a year, which was first achieved in 2012 (303,035 cars). A similar result was attained also in 2013 (303,460 cars) and 307,450 vehicles. In year 2015 (342,200). Production plan for 2016 has been increased to 350,000 cars a year. In addition to car production, there is also a transmission shop in the HMMC premises. The transmissions made here are mounted not only in vehicles produced at HMMC but also in those made in the sister plant Kia Motor Žilina, Slovakia and Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Rus factory in St. Petersburg.


Since the very beginning, HMMC Nošovice provides work opportunities for Czech citizens, especially inhabitants of the Moravian-Silesian region, who represent some 97% of all our employees. 7,000 people are employed by HMMC´s subcontractors that followed Hyundai to the Czech Republic. All in all the Hyundai project has created over 10,000 jobs in the region, which significantly helped to decrease unemployment.
