Nissan Celebrates Ten Years of American Manufacturing
The automaker's Mississippi manufacturing plant has been producing Nissan vehicles since 2003.
In the past ten years, Nissan has assembled over 2 million vehicles, generating nearly $2 billion in payroll for its employees, and has no plans of slowing down. In Canton, Mississippi in 2003, a legacy was born, a legacy that the company is looking to celebrate with a range of events designed to highlight their commitment to the people of Mississippi as well as focus on the accomplishments of their over 5,000 employees.
Although their Canton assembly plant started out small, producing only a single model in 2003, it has expanded to produce seven vehicles out of Nissan's current lineup, from the Titan and Frontier pickup trucks to the award-winning Altima (http://www.libertyvillenissan.com/
Dan Bednarzyk, plant manager and vice president attributes the past decade of successes to the dedication and work ethic of their employees, asserting that Nissan has “more to look forward to in the future” because of their highly skilled and committed workforce.
In addition to serving as one of the leading job creators in the area, Nissan has a history of donating toward area organizations. They have contributed over $5 million to a variety of community-focused programs that benefit humanitarian aid, the environment, local schools, and more.
There are more announcements to come, as Nissan likely has quite a bit in store for this historic anniversary.
