Take advantage of this unique opportunity to observe award-winning automotive assembly in action!
Your guided tour will give you the chance to witness our impressive facility and see Subaru vehicle production from start to finish. Tours of SIA will highlight the stamping process where you will observe giant presses turning raw coils of steel into the vehicle’s metal structure. From there you will see these panels expertly welded together by over 860 robots in our Body Assembly area. The plastics production area features several large tonnage injection molding presses producing bumpers. Following the Paint Shop, you will see Associates bring the vehicles to life as they assemble over 5,000 parts on each vehicle in Trim and Final. Finally, viewing the Tester Line will prove the commitment to quality and safety. Ultimately, you will see what makes a Subaru a Subaru.
