Nissan has announced it will pump 170-million dollars into it's assembly plant here in Smyrna and another in Mississippi to produce the new Altima sedan.
The announcement was made last week at the Smyrna facility, which has been making vehicles for the company since opening in June of 1982. Over 13-million vehicles have been manufactured in Smyrna and nearly five-million have been Altimas.
The money will be used to upgrade the facility here and in Canton, Mississippi. Locally, the Altima, Maxima, Pathfinder, LEAF and Rogue are built along with the Infinity QX60.
