Hyundai in Canada

Part of the Auto Canada Inc. from 1989, Hyundai opened a stamping and assembly plant in Bromont, Quebec employing 800 people.

The plant is about 387.7 million dollars, but a part of the entire sum was paid by Quebec and Canadian federal government.

Cheysler and Hyundai considered a joint venture with Chrysler rebranding the Sonata manufactured at Bromont. But the deal failed soon after the announcement.

The Bromont plant was operational for four years before it closed – with Hyundai’s sales unable to support the plant. With boost in Sales in 2009, Hyundai Auto Canada Inc. is currently planning to build a new plant in Canada and resume production in Canada. Hyundai subsequently sold the plant which was eventually purchased by AAER Inc., a manufacturer of wind turbines based in Quebec.
