    That's good to hear, as I know of several organizations that have made it their goal to eliminate free radicals.

    I'm new here, but I was in Shreveport two days ago. A customer of mine there was telling me that the Elio plant was hiring 150 people and something was starting up right away. I was in the middle of a few things and never checked into it. I was wondering of Elio was starting production soon because I have seen the car in person last year and really liked it. Does this mean they are ready to build?

    My guess would be that those hires are for the Hyundai DYMOS, the seat maker for the Elio....just a guess :)

    That's good. With Hyundai ramping up seat production, that means Elio will be way ahead of them. I deal in automotive suppliers and the manufacturer is at least 3-4 months ahead of the suppliers for items like seats. It just comes down to that seats are pretty much the same and production can be done in 3 months.

    It's not the "Elio Plant" that's hiring. It doesn't have anything at all to do with Elio Motors or seats.

    From the news article...

    "We've been working on this project for almost a year and what it is is basically a large distribution center. Kia and Hyundai-branded vehicles," said NLEP President Scott Martinez.

    Workers at the state-of-the-art vehicle logistics and processing center will do quality inspections and outfit imported vehicles with equipment and exterior upgrades for 75,000 Kia vehicles annually as requested by local dealers, officials said.

    The facility also will serve as Kia’s distribution hub for the central and western United States.

    Officials said Shreveport's ability to ship the cars out drew GLOVIS in.

    Transportation infrastructure in place with the rail, being able to transport the vehicles from Mexico as well as from international ports," said Martinez."

    Just read online, production pushed back from end of 2017 to 2018. The Caddo Parish is upset because Elio Motors was originally promising jobs for the unemployed GM workers back in 2015. The building administrator RACER is possibly going after Elio Motors for renigging on the deal and selling off unneeded equipment left by GM.
