The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, Inc. (JAMA) is a non-profit industry association which comprises Japan’s fourteen manufacturers of passenger cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles. The JAMA USA office is located in Washington, D.C.
The JAMA member success story is the result of decades of collaboration between JAMA member companies and multiple generations of American workforce talent. The focus: building cars and trucks that U.S. consumers love. This is the core mission that drives our members’ dedication to the full spectrum of advanced manufacturing, high-tech research and development, and innovative design at facilities around the country.
Alabama’s commerce secretary said potential tariffs on European and Japanese vehicles and auto parts could “threaten to seriously disrupt” their operations in the state and “put Alabama jobs on the line.”
“These numbers speak for themselves about JAMA member companies’ long history of local contributions and commitment as U.S. corporate citizens, and we are certain that neither imported vehicles and parts nor our American operations ‘threaten to impair’ the U.S. national security,” Toyoda said.
