The reason for all the job creation at the Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant is due to the fact that it will begin producing the brand-new 2013 Nissan Sentra. On top of that addition, the Canton facility will also begin taking on the Frontier pickup truck as well as the XTerra SUV from Nissan’s Assembly Plant in Smyrna, Tennessee. The 1,000 new jobs will put the total number of employees at more than 4,500 people working at Nissan’s Canton facility.

Bill Krueger, Nissan America’s Vice Chairman, talked about how big of an asset the people at the Canton Assembly Plant are for Nissan America, stating that, “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. The Canton team has proved it can compete and win on a global scale, and it is due to this that we are adding three vehicles to our production roster in Mississippi.”
