The Aisin name first became familiar to our area with the groundbreaking ceremony at Aisin Mfg. Illinois, which took place in October 2001. This was the first Aisin plant in Illinois, which focuses on the assembly of sunroofs, power slide door modules, and door locks. Aisin then continued their expansion when they broke ground on their second plant, Aisin Light Metals (LLC), in October 2003. Aisin Light Metals’ products include bumper reinforcements and ABS bodies. With the groundbreaking of Aisin Electronics Illinois, LLC in July 2004, Aisin Electronics Illinois, LLC became the third Aisin plant located in our community.
