Hyundai Adding Over 800 Workers At Alabama Plant

DETROIT (AP) – Hyundai is hiring. The automaker plans to add 877 people at its Montgomery, Ala., assembly plant so it can run a third shift to make more Sonata midsize sedans and Elantra compact cars.

Those two models are Hyundai’s two biggest sellers in the U.S. and the added hiring will help Hyundai build 20,000 more of the vehicles.

Dealers have complained that they can’t get enough of the cars, and Hyundai has been struggling to find ways to build more of them.
