Yorozu Automotive Alabama – Yorozu considered several potential locations in Georgia and Alabama for our new plant in the South. During the lengthy research of possible sites we met with David Knight from the Walker County Development Authority. The Development Authority was a key component in the final decision to build in Walker County. They, along with the City of Jasper, fully supported Yorozu during the pre-construction and construction phases. That support and assistance continues just as strongly now that our plant is in operation.
