Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Czech s r.o. (HMMC), headquartered in the Nošovice industrial zone, was established on 7 July 2006. This historically is the largest foreign investment in the Czech Republic and was concluded in Korea one year earlier by representatives of the Czech Republic, the Moravian-Silesian Region, CzechInvest and Hyundai Motor Group.
The first pillar of the new plant was erected in April 2007 and after only 19 months the first mass-produced car rolled off the line. The environment has always been a high priority for Hyundai, and so has been the case with the construction of HMMC. More than a thousand trees that were located in the area were replanted in a demanding manner during the construction and restored to their original place after the construction was completed. You can still see these trees in HMMC today.
