    Toyota Georgetown was good for KY and these new Ford manufacturing facilities will be as well.

    SK Innovation will fabricate the cells and then the new plant will assemble the cells into packs. SK Innovation cell manufacturing is located in South Korea. I got this announcement from the SK Innovations website.

    "SK innovation has successfully applied high energy density ternary materials to lithium-ion batteries for the first time in the electric vehicle battery industry for mass production. Based on such technological capabilities, SK innovation signed supply contracts with major global automakers, Hyundai Motor Group, BAIC Group and including Daimler AG has been expanding the electric vehicle battery business."
