Aisin USA announces expansion plans in Seymour: Report

Aisin USA Manufacturing, a Japanese-owned manufacturer of automotive parts, announced plans to expand its operations in Seymour, creating up to 100 new jobs by the end of 2018.

WBIW radio is reporting that the company will invest nearly $100-million to expand its manufacturing operations on Fourth Street. Aisin USA manufactures automotive components and systems, supplying parts for vehicle makers Honda, Chevrolet, Toyota and Lexus. WBIW reports that expansion work will begin later this year.

The report states that Aisin USA employs more than 1,700 at its Seymour facility and plans to begin hiring for new manufacturing positions in 2017. Interested applicants can apply by emailing a resume to [email protected] or by completing an application on-site.

WBIW says that the Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Aisin USA up to $500,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. The city of Seymour approved tax abatement for the first phase of the project earlier this week, says the report.
