In the fourth quarter of 2012, Nissan will begin producing the next generation Sentra compact but this time around, it will have a new home. Inside Mississippi’s Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant will be the car’s new build line which will add a wealth of new jobs to the growing area. With additional help from the production switch created by the Xterra and Frontier, the 2013 Sentra will add 1,000 new positions to the Canton family.
“The addition of Sentra production is a testament to our dedicated Canton workforce and the high level of production quality that they deliver each and every day,” said Bill Krueger, vice chairman of Nissan Americas. The Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant was established in 2003 and currently produces the Altima, Titan, Armada and NV. With 3.5 million square feet on 1,400 acres, the facility is ready for more work and will get it soon enough. Joining the Sentra will be the Frontier and Xterra which will leave their Smyrna, Tennessee home for Mississippi. Once the trio arrive, Canton will have a workforce of more than 4,500 people strong.
