Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama Will Idle Production Operations Through May 1, 2020

Montgomery, Ala. April 8, 2020 – Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) will continue to idle automobile production in Montgomery, Alabama, through May 1, 2020. Production is expected to resume on Monday, May 4, 2020.

HMMA has decided to continue to suspend vehicle production to protect the health and well-being of our team members, their families and communities. HMMA employees will continue to receive full medical, dental and vision benefits during this production interruption. Team members may also use their paid vacation time or leave during this period.

HMMA’s top priority is the safety and well-being of our employees. We have developed enhanced procedures to sanitize workspaces for our approximately 3,000 team members.  We are taking proactive steps to pre-screen for elevated temperatures; ensure physical distancing guidelines throughout our facilities; expand cleaning protocols and increase distribution of health and safety materials.

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey issued a stay-at-home order until April 30, 2020. HMMA team members and their families are encouraged to respect the order and follow Centers for Disease Control and Alabama Department of Public Health protocols for reducing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Hyundai’s entire U.S. operation is responding to the current situation and providing assistance to its employees, customers, healthcare providers and communities. Some of those activities include:

  • Hyundai Hope On Wheels® (HHOW) donated $2.2 million to children’s hospitals throughout U.S. to support coronavirus (COVID-19) Drive-Thru Testing Centers
  • Reinstated the Hyundai Assurance Job Loss Protection program that provides up to six months of payment relief for new customers who finance through Hyundai Motor Finance (HMF) and lose their job due to COVID-19, 0% APR financing and four months of deferred payments on select new models to well-qualified buyers who finance through HMF, and up to three months of payment deferrals for current HMF customers
