Nissan says it wants to produce around 507,000 vehicles annually at the plant by 2017, which would require adding around 1,000 new hourly jobs to the already sizeable staff of 6,000 in order to add capacity for more than 55,000 additional units on a yearly basis.
In order to make Canton Vehicle Assembly capable of handling the load of building the new Murano for 100 global markets, Nissan added 1,300 jobs to the plant and invested about $2.8 billion in total.
Nissan has said that it intends to produce 85 percent of all vehicles sold in the United States at its North American facilities by 2015.
The new Murano is the eighth model being built at the Canton plant alongside the Altima, Armada, Titan King and Crew Cab, Frontier King and Crew Cab, Xterra, NV Cargo, and NV Passenger. To check out these and more of Nissan’s latest and greatest, stop in and see us at Nissan of Lake Charles!
