When it comes to creating a successful, timeless and affluent operation, there must be a solid focus on great people, efficient processes and consist high quality services. This focus has allowed Jefferson Industries Corporation to see amazing success since its American inception in 1988. After breaking ground in West Jefferson, we have become an internationally-renowned leader in the world of auto parts manufacturing. We have a storied history of bold moves, smart investments and magnificent growth. Take a look at our story below!
It all began with a grassy field in 1988 and the aspirations of President Tsugio Kikuchi. “We have had a dream, for a long time, to conduct business with the world’s largest industrial nation, America.” Within 12 months of inauguration, Jefferson Industries Corporation established itself with a 200,00 sq. ft. manufacturing plant and the original operation put more than 220 local individuals to work. The hard work of these founding employees, along with this great move to the United States, allowed us to establish an amazing foundation for future domestic success.
Throughout the first 10 years of operation, we established a reputation of excellence locally, nationally and internationally. Our growth was undeniable as we made a great impact on the automotive parts market. JIC continued to set the bar for others, while exceeding established industry standards.
JIC hit the ground running when the 21st Century rolled around. We continued our sharp upward trend of growth and success, but we also furthered our community involvement, became more invested in local markets and established stronger camaraderie among our team members by embracing culture and providing great incentives for employees to get involved with individual and group philanthropic endeavors.
In 2014, G-NAC joined the J-Group family with a 183,000 sq. ft. facility that was completely dedicated to manufacturing hot-stamped parts, which not only added new capabilities to the organization, but also made internal efficiency exponentially greater. As Jefferson Industries Corporation moves forward, we continue to perfect our processes, adhere to the values that have brought us great success throughout our storied history and look for new areas of expansion, growth and prosperity.
