Subaru of Indiana Automotive (SIA) hopes your Legacy will include a Tribeca parked Outback, all of which are made by SIA for the North American market. Boasting an annual capacity of more than 300,000 units per eight-hour shift, SIA was founded in 1987 as a joint venture between Fuji Heavy Industries and Isuzu Motors, but it has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Fuji Heavy Industries since 2003. The Indiana subsidiary also builds Toyota Camrys through a joint venture that Fuji Heavy Industries has with Toyota Motor. Sister company Subaru of America handles marketing and distribution of company cars in the US. Half of them are made by SIA.
The parent company generated about 43% of its revenue from the US in fiscal 2013.
Because Subaru sales have been increasing in North America, especially for the Outback and Legacy, SIA is spending about $75 million to expand its plant by 52,000 sq. ft. in a project that is scheduled to conclude in 2014. The expansion will result in about 100 new jobs.
The company operates under the Automobile segment of the parent company. The Automobile segment alone contributed about 93% of the parent company's total revenue in fiscal 2013.
