Last year, Nissan’s assembly plant in Canton, Mississippi celebrated its tenth anniversary. This year, the plant is celebrating another milestone: its debut as a global manufacturer. The Nissan Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant is now home to the globally exported 2015 Nissan Murano.
This is the first time the Murano has been manufactured in the United States and brings the automaker closer to reaching its goal of producing 85% of the vehicles sold here in the States in North America.
In addition to sending the newly-redesigned crossover to dealers in the States like us here at 171 Nissan, the Murano is shipped from Nissan Canton to over 100 markets.
“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, a technician at Nissan Canton and one of the Murano launch team members. “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.”
Congratulations to the Nissan Canton assembly plant! We can’t wait to receive our shipment of the 2015 Murano.
