Japanese-brand automakers celebrate their partnerships across America
The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association U.S. office released its 2019-2020 Annual Contributions Report, “JAMA IN AMERICA: An Enduring Partnership”.
The report shows that Japanese-brand automakers now directly provide more than 93,000 American jobs and in 2018 built nearly 3.7 million vehicles and 4.4 million engines in the U.S.
Over nearly four decades, Japanese-brand automakers have cumulatively invested about $51 billion in their U.S. manufacturing facilities.
«Today, Japanese-brand automakers build one-third of all vehicles produced in the U.S.. Our success is the result of our members’ partnership with generations of American workforce talent to build cars and trucks that U.S. consumers love. This collaboration generates more than 1.6 million American jobs throughout the value chain – a footprint that touches every state in the country» said Manny Manriquez, general director of JAMA USA.
