People Drive SIA to Succeed:
Over 3,000 highly-skilled production professionals, engineers, administrative staff, variable workers, vendors and contractors come together at SIA every day to produce some of the world’s finest vehicles. It is only because of the skills and dedication of these Associates, combined with a strong spirit of Kaizen, that SIA is able to maintain such a high level of quality, safety and efficiency. This dedication extends beyond the factory walls as SIA Associates donate time and money to help hundreds of charitable organizations state-wide.
Safety is Two-Fold at SIA:
Because we know that our Associates are our greatest assets, we strive to maintain the SAFEST work environment and build the SAFEST vehicles on the road. It is SIA’s goal to maintain the lowest OSHA incident rates in the industry. To achieve this, SIA remains diligent and proactive in implementing accident and injury prevention strategies throughout the entire plant.
It is no secret that quality is built into every Subaru at SIA. In fact, SIA was the first U.S. auto assembly plant to be ISO 9001 certified. We enforce a strict policy of zero defects. Countless checks and balances throughout the production process ensure that every vehicle that drives off the production line is one of the finest in the world.
SIA is the Industry Leader in Environmental Stewardship:
SIA was the first U.S. auto assembly plant to receive ISO 14001 certification, the first to be designated a Backyard Wildlife Habitat (by the National Wildlife Federation) and the first to achieve zero landfill status. By reducing, reusing and recycling, SIA has avoided sending any waste to a landfill since May 4, 2004. SIA has been recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency by receiving the 2006 WasteWise Gold Achievement Award for New Partner, the 2007 WasteWise Gold Achievement Award for Industrial Recycling, the 2008 WasteWise Gold Achievement Award for Climate Change and the 2009 WasteWise Gold Achievement Award for Community Involvement.
