New Nissan Murano Means More Jobs for Canton-Area Auto Workers

Japanese auto manufacturer, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., is preparing to expand production and the size of its workforce at its Canton, MS location. The Canton factory is gearing up to increase capacity by 500 workers to support production of the 2015 Nissan Murano. Production is slated to begin in the fall of 2014. 

Featuring breakthrough design and advanced technology, the Murano will join the Canton plant portfolio as the eighth model to be produced at that location. The Canton factory has grown steadily since it opened 11 years ago, including adding 2000 positions and 6 products just within the last three years. With the addition of 500 more jobs, the facility will boast a workforce over 6000 strong.

Plans to add an onsite supplier in conjunction with the Murano project suggest even more optimism over Nissan’s continued success and growth in the area, which is good news for the area’s economy and workers. Persons interested in working at Nissan’s Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant are encouraged to apply or contact the appropriate office for more information.
