Hyundai Manufacturing in America - "Made in America"

Hyundai Motor Corporation's $1.1 billion automotive assembly and manufacturing plant in Montgomery, Alabama, began production in March 2005, rolling out the all-new 2006 Sonata. This is the company's first assembly and manufacturing plant in the United States:

• It employs approximately 2,000 people in Montgomery
   and the surrounding area.
• Occupying 1,600 acres, it will produce 300,000 vehicles
   per year at maximum capacity.

HMC selected Montgomery, Alabama, for its first U.S. plant because of its high-quality workforce, its strategic location in proximity to American population centers, the superb automotive parts supply chain available in the region and the commitment shown by the state of Alabama and the city of Montgomery.

Hyundai Hope on Wheels Program          

Funding Pediatric Cancer Research

As we to launch our 2013 program, we celebrate the contributions of Hyundai Motor America and its more than 800 dealers nationwide that have enabled Hyundai Hope On Wheels to reach this important milestone - 15 years in the fight against pediatric cancer and more than $58 million donated to support research and programs at pediatric cancer institutions across the country, with 325 research projects currently underway!

Our story begins in 1998 when a group of New England-area Hyundai dealers launched a local initiative to raise funds to support pediatric cancer through The Jimmy Fund at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. What started as a small contribution in a local market has evolved into Hyundai Hope On Wheels, an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. With the sale of every new Hyundai vehicle, Hyundai and its dealers make a contribution to Hyundai Hope On Wheels.

We would like to thank Hyundai and its dealers for their unwavering support as well as the doctors, researchers and hospital staffs for their tireless work. And we especially thank the children and families affected by cancer for their tremendous courage and strength that inspires us every day!

The Hyundai Scholar Grant program began in 2006. Each year we visit children’s hospitals across the U.S. to donate funds and raise awareness. At every grant presentation a “Handprint Ceremony” takes place. This is the program’s signature activity, which captures each child’s handprint. These handprints are placed on Hyundai cars that travel across the country to build colorful awareness of the program.

In 2011, Hyundai Hope On Wheels made a $10 million 5-year commitment to establish the Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC Children's Hospital in Orange County, CA. This gift is the largest in the hospital's history, and has made special pediatric cancer projects possible.

Now as we reach our 15-year anniversary, we mark this occasion with a number of activities to extend what has been achieved thus far. In 2013, we will award additional grant dollars and create greater awareness for the disease. Our goal is to surpass $72 million by year’s end. And, we invite you to join our journey and help spread the word through your direct participation, personal involvement and social media activities to further awareness.

While we celebrate an important year in our organization's history, we realize there is much work to be done to end this disease that affects far too many of our children. Hyundai Hope On Wheels is committed to this fight until we reach a day when no family will have to hear the words, "your child has cancer."

Congratulations to winners of the 2013 Hyundai Hope Grant! There will be 41 Hope Grants awarded at hospitals and cancer research centers across the country during the month of September. A total of $10.25 million will fund childhood cancer research projects designated to improve the treatment and quality of life for children with cancer.
