Nissan announced further expansion of its U.S. manufacturing footprint with Gov. Bill Haslam and Tennessee Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd joining Nissan officials at the State Capitol to announce a new $160 million supplier park project at the company's Smyrna, Tenn. vehicle assembly plant.
Through the first seven months of 2014, Nissan has delivered a record-setting performance in North America with sales, market share and vehicle production gains across the region, highlighted by the company's Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant, which has become the top-producing automotive manufacturing plant in the North American industry so far this year.
Air is free, right? Tell that to the Nissan Energy Management Team who combed through countless miles of tubing in the compressed air system in U.S. manufacturing facilities and repaired enough leaks to save 11,300 megawatt hours of energy last year.
