Nissan Produces Fullsize Titan Truck Job OneHundreds of employees who built the first Nissan Titan - a red King Cab SE 4x4 - cheered as it rolled off Nissan North America's (NNA) assembly line in Canton, Mississippi. The Titan is the third product to roll off Canton's assembly line in less than five months, an unprecedented launch schedule. Construction of the plant began just two-and-a-half years ago, and since that time, several thousand employees have been hired and trained to build high-quality, innovative Nissan vehicles. In 2003, the Quest minivan began production on May 27, the Pathfinder Armada fullsize SUV was added to the line in mid-August, and in October, the first Titan moved off the assembly line.
The first Titan, which was driven off the line with the help of Canton, Mississippi, Mayor Fred Esco Jr., will be donated to the city of Canton for use by its Public Works Department. Nissan's Canton plant is a $1.43 billion, 3.5-million-square-foot facility situated on approximately 1,400 acres about 15 miles north of Jackson, Mississippi. It has the capacity to build as many as 400,000 vehicles per year. In addition to the Quest, Pathfinder Armada, and Titan, the Canton plant will begin producing the first Infiniti vehicle - a fullsize SUV - built in the U.S. It will also eventually supplement the production of the Nissan Altima midsize sedan, also produced at Nissan's award-winning Smyrna, Tennessee, assembly plant.
