A visitor walks past a Hyundai Motor logo at a Hyundai dealership in Seoul is seen in this April 25, 2013 file photograph. Its seven domestic plants have driven Hyundai to become the world's fifth-largest auto manufacturer, but are now a legacy asset that need to be addressed to sustain profit growth. It may make more sense, economically, for the company to close a plant it built 45 years ago - one of five in Ulsan - that is now its oldest and costliest facility. But Hyundai says it won't give up its Korean base and says that fixing productivity issues with its strong domestic union is a top priority.
