CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Hankook Tire will begin recruiting soon for the first openings at its Clarksville plant and focus primarily on administrative jobs with production positions to come later.

President of Clarksville-based Workforce Essentials Inc., Marla Rye said the company's hiring team will arrive in the United States by mid-to-late April. They will work out of temporary offices in the Clarksville-Montgomery County Corporate Business Park until the 1.5 million-square-foot plant is constructed in a few years.

Rye said the first hiring phase will bring in managerial, administrative and engineering employees. Hiring for production employees will come later.

When the plant is completed by 2018, Hankook hopes to have hired about 200 administrative staff and 1,600 manufacturing staff, for a total of 1,800 people.

Clarksville-based Workforce Essentials Inc will announce all of Hankook Tire's open positions online at www.Jobs4TN.gov.
