Auto supplier hosts job fair
An auto supplier in the region is expanding its workforce by 50 positions.
Holland-based LG Chem Michigan, or LGCMI, said yesterday that it’s hosting a job fair on Tuesday at Michigan Works! in Holland, located at 121 Clover St., to increase its employee roster. The company currently employs 400 people.
LGCMI makes large lithium-ion polymer batteries for electric vehicles and energy storage applications.
The job fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is open to anyone seeking employment with the company.
Open positions primarily include technical operators, which start at $13.50 per hour, and some production engineer, supervisor and office positions.
LGCMI said candidates should come prepared with a copy of a recent resume and may pre-apply online or at the job fair.
Those interested in operator positions should bring their WorkKeys certificate if they have one. Otherwise, WorkKeys testing can be scheduled at the job fair.
The company said it needs to add employees to keep up with growing demand from its automotive customers, which include GM, Ford, Renault, Hyundai/Kia, Volvo, Audi and Daimler.
LGCMI is a subsidiary of LG Chem, a South Korean company.
