It is time for us to change the way we think about American manufacturing and recognize the new realities. Amidst the present uncertainty about the nature of these realities is the idea that “America doesn’t manufacture things anymore.” That could not be further from the truth.
We can point to Japanese-brand automakers’ increasing contributions to America through direct and indirect employment as well as investment in R&D, the American workforce and local communities, as evidence of our integral role in the US auto industry and indeed, the country as a whole.
New annual report shows Japanese-brand automakers dynamic role in the U.S. automotive industry and continued dedication to Driving America's Automotive Future.
With Japanese-brand automakers’ cumulative investment in the United States exceeding $45 billion as of 2015, JAMA members have increasingly demonstrated their commitment to building and selling their vehicles here over the last four decades.
We invite you to follow us on Twitter and engage in the conversation about our member companies’ exciting contributions and activities in America.
