(SEOUL=Yonhap News) Hyundai Elevator Co., South Korea's leading elevator maker, said Wednesday it has signed a 250 billion-won (US$213 million) deal with local municipal authorities to set up its new production base in the country's central region.

Hyundai Elevator said municipal governments of North Chungcheong Province and Chungju city have pledged to give administrative support, including tax benefits, for its project.
