Nissan’s Canton Plant Now Supports More Than 6,000 Manufacturing Jobs

2015 Nissan Murano

Nissan opened 1,300 new jobs at its Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant to help support production of the new Murano, including 400 new supplier jobs.

This is the first time Nissan will manufacture a global product at the facility, which already builds eight other vehicles alongside it. The move is part of Nissan’s goal to build where it sells—the current objective is targeting 85% of the vehicles it sells in the United States produced in North America by 2015.

Since its opening in 2003, Nissan has invested nearly $2.8 billion in the Nissan Canton plant and grown it to support more than 6,000 manufacturing jobs. It is currently responsible for the manufacturing of the Altima, Armada, Titan, Frontier, Xterra, and NV, all of which you can find here at Bates Nissan.

“Since I started with Nissan 11 years ago I’ve watched this plant grow, and I’ve had the opportunity to work on some of Nissan’s most popular vehicles,” said Christina Doss, Nissan Canton technician and member of the Murano launch team. “It’s amazing to see how far we’ve come, and now that we’re producing the Murano here, I get to tell friends and family that I work on vehicles that are shipped around the world.”

Happy 80th Birthday, Nissan!

Next week, on December 26, the Nissan name will turn 80. Over the last 80 years, Nissan has accomplished so much, and has even managed to  fit it all into a three minute video.

Check out this awesome video of highlights and then make sure to wish your local Nissan dealer a Happy 80th birthday!

Each model is seeing a significant change in its MSRP. Nissan will be knocking $580 off the Altima, the leading seller for Nissan while the Armada will have $4,400 marked off. In addition, the Sentra will see a $730 price drop and the Rogue will be $2,300 cheaper. Nissan is cutting$1,290 off the high-end Juke, $1,460 from the low-end model of the Murano and $2,410 off the high end model, and $2,270 from the lower end model of the Maxima and $3,030 off the high end model.

Jose Munoz, senior vice president for sales and marketing for the Americas, said the price cut is not applied across the board, but “for the time being, we are applying it to the seven models.”
