The largest single investment was Hankook's announcement of a new tire plant scheduled to open in 2016 in the Clarksville area. The operation is expected to employ 1,800 workers at an announced cost of $800 million. The plant will mark the eighth South Korean firm active in the state. The map indicates the location and size of the year's foreign investments. As can be seen, the majority of investments were in middle Tennessee. Twelve of the new investments or expansions are in automotive-related industries, accounting for the geographical concentration.
