A Part of Our Communities

International automakers build more than automobiles: We build communities.

Supporting the communities where we live and work

Today, international brand automakers and retailers are a major economic engine in every corner of the United States, operating 500 facilities and 9,500 retail franchises while supporting more than 2.3 million American jobs. Our significant investments in U.S. communities have created a vast ecosystem of manufacturing facilities, suppliers, dealers, and other businesses that create opportunities and improve lives. The programs, initiatives, and partnerships we’ve created in our communities are aimed at building a strong future for all who live and work there.
