Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation of America and Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, are celebrating 30 years of U.S. manufacturing at the Newnan, Georgia, facility.

Throughout the three decades as a leading manufacturer based in Georgia, YMMC has produced more than 3.5 million vehicles including ATVs, side-by-side vehicles, golf cars and watercraft for worldwide distribution. For years, Yamaha’s Assembled in USA brand has represented the highest standards in powersports manufacturing and the thousands of U.S. jobs that Yamaha’s local manufacturing supports.

“Yamaha’s U.S. production ensures the legendary quality and reliability that people expect from Yamaha, while also providing a high level of responsiveness to U.S. market demands and streamlined U.S. distribution,” said YMMC president Mike Chrzanowski. “Thirty years and 3.5 million vehicles is something to celebrate, but we’re also looking forward to the future as Yamaha continues to innovate and develop new products for powersports enthusiasts in the U.S. and around the world.”

Over the past 15 years, Yamaha has invested more than $354 million to create and maintain a state-of-the-art, 1,355,000 square foot facility in Newnan, while ensuring top-quality products are built in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.

“YMMC is committed to the highest quality and safety standards for our employees, our community, and our customers,” Chrzanowski added.

Of Yamaha’s approximately 3,400 U.S. employees, more than 1,500 people are directly employed at its YMMC factory. The factory is ISO9001 Quality Management System and ISO14001 Environmental Management System certified.
