This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the incorporation of Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. (SIA). Since our incorporation on March 17, 1987, our mission has been to contribute to society through the growth of our Company. Now, a quarter of a century later, we've stayed true to our mission, employing a record number of Associates, producing a record number of vehicles and continuing to lead the auto industry in quality, safety and environmental stewardship. Over the next several months, SIA will host a variety of events to celebrate its history of manufacturing world-class vehicles, creating partnerships in the community and employing a vary talented and skilled workforce. These events will offer SIA Associates the opportunity to celebrate the company's achievements while also offering the community a chance to get an inside-look at Subaru's unique manufacturing process. We invite you to join in our celebrations and learn more about SIA, by taking a tour of our website or a tour of our plant in-person. Sign up for a free plant tour by clicking on "Tour SIA" in the menu. Or check out our calendar of events for opportunities to meet SIA Associates and learn about SIA's rich history, recent achievements and vision for a successful future.
Be sure to mark your calendar for SIA's 25th Anniversary Open House on Saturday, July 28. During this extra-special event, SIA will open its doors for an up-close and in-depth look at the inner workings of this unique manufacturing plant. If you've toured SIA before, you'll want to come back for the Open House. Self-guided tours will take you down to the production floor, where you can view the giant stamping presses that cut and mold steel in seconds. You'll get a close up view of some of the hundreds of robots that are precise to a fraction of a millimeter. You'll be amazed at the miles of conveyors that take the steel skeleton of a car through this 3-million square foot plant as thousands of parts are added one-by-one until it is ready to drive off the line. You'll get a glimpse at the engine plant where the famous Subaru BOXER engine is assembled. You'll see the tester line where each and every vehicle is put through a rigorous series of quality checks to ensure our customers get the highest quality and safest vehicle on the road. You'll also learn about SIA's environmental initiatives and see how SIA became the first U.S. auto plant to achieve zero landfill status. On behalf of all of the Associates at SIA, we express our sincerest gratitude for the Greater Lafayette community, Tippecanoe County and the State of Indiana for your support over the past 25 years. It is our mission to continue to be an exemplary corporate citizen as we Team Up for Tomorrow!
