Jennifer Safavian | Celebrating Manufacturing Month—the International Automaker Way
October 28, 2022
Manufacturing Month is celebrated each October, and it offers us the opportunity to recognize how international automakers operating in the U.S. continue to improve lives and communities nationwide. This month, Autos Drive America had a lot to celebrate, with our members opening new facilities, hosting events that highlighted our robust and talented workforce, and making charitable contributions that truly make a difference.
Our members also commemorated key manufacturing and production milestones during Manufacturing Month, showing international automakers’ continued growth in the U.S. Nissan announced that its Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant—a central institution in Mississippi creating more than 25,000 jobs—celebrated 5 million vehicles produced at the beginning of the month.
International automakers continue to drive the U.S. auto industry forward. Our members have achieved unparalleled growth over the past year, and they have made significant strides in U.S. investment, workforce development, and production. And I’m confident that the growth we’ve seen will continue—and that next October, we will have even more to celebrate.
