Aisin USA Manufacturing has chosen Seymour, Indiana for a $100 million investment to expand its manufacturing facilities and add 100 new jobs over the next 4 years.

The company manufacturers and supplies automotive components and systems, including door frame components, latching systems and seating and trim molding for vehicles such as the Honda Odyssey, Chevy Traverse, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Camry, Toyota Avalon, Toyota Corolla, Toyota RAV4 and Lexus models.

The expansion and investment are needed to accommodate design changes being incorporated by its customers, Aisin officials said.

Aisin USA in Seymour was the company’s first North American manufacturing facility for its parent company, Aisin Seiki in Japan. It also operates Aisin Drivetrain Inc. and Aisin Chemical Indiana LLC, both in Crothersville, Indiana.

“For nearly 30 years, Aisin USA has been one of our most important companies, and we obviously are pleased that they continue to invest here,” said Seymour Mayor Craig Luedeman. “This is great news, and we pledge our support to them.”

Jeff Nordman, executive vice president of Aisin USA said the company wouldn’t be able to grow if it wasn’t for the support of the city and the state which are proving incentives including local property tax abatement and conditional employment tax credits.

“Aisin is excited to expand and continue its operations in Seymour, Indiana,” Nordman said. “We have enjoyed a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Seymour and Jackson County.”
