Subaru of Indiana Automotive Celebrates 3 Millionth Subaru
By: Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc.
"It is only through the dedication of our Associates and their focus on quality, safety and teamwork that we are able to celebrate our 3 millionth Subaru at SIA," said Tom Easterday, SIA Senior Executive Vice President. "From the Subaru Legacy that was built here on September 11, 1989 to this beautiful Outback built today, Subarus made at SIA have been enjoyed by customers across America and in over 50 other countries where our Subarus have been exported."
In addition to the Subaru Legacy and Outback models currently produced at SIA, the plant also made the Subaru Baja and Tribeca in the past. SIA will begin building the Subaru Impreza late this year, and will add Subaru's new 3-row crossover vehicle to its production line-up in 2018. SIA recently completed a $140 million plant expansion and added more than 1,200 Associates to accommodate the Impreza and increased production volume. This was the third expansion at SIA in the last six years. Since 2008, sales of the Subaru Legacy have nearly tripled and sales of the Subaru Outback have almost quadrupled in the U.S. market.
"This is an exciting time for SIA," Easterday said. "With our rate of growth and recent expansions, it's easy to see that the next 3 million Subaru vehicles will come much faster. That's good news for all of us at SIA, for our local community, and for Indiana."
While SIA has exported Subaru vehicles to over 50 different countries, the production of 3 million Subaru vehicles has had a particularly meaningful impact on Indiana, and the local community. SIA receives parts from several suppliers located in Indiana. In addition, SIA has also received several awards for its quality, safety and environmental stewardship, and engaged in significant corporate philanthropy, including funding the SIA Foundation and through "Subaru Serves," its Associate volunteer program.
