SEAG facilitates Alabama visits from Korean company

Southeast Alabama Gas Co. has facilitated visits from a South Korean company that is considering Alabama as one of five possible sites for an electric vehicle manufacturing plant.

Greg Henderson, CEO of SEAG, said the company’s economic developer, Billy Joe Camp, helped facilitate CT&T Co., Ltd.’s first visit to Alabama.

“We hosted all of our municipalities who wanted to meet with them for a luncheon in Montgomery, and the Alabama Development Office (ADO) was there, as well,” Henderson said. “They (CT&T) have been out looking for a location and making presentations since Memorial Day.”

The company, which manufactures golf carts in South Korea, plans to build a headquarters and several manufacturing facilities in the United States, the company has said.
