AISIN North Carolina Corporation is one of the leading manufacturers of fully assembled automatic transmissions and transmission components for passenger cars and trucks. On April 1, 2022, our company name formally changed to AISIN North Carolina Corporation from AW North Carolina, Inc. This change is due to the merger between Aisin AW Co., Ltd and Aisin Seiki Co., Ltd., completed on April 1, 2021, to form "AISIN CORPORATION." Worldwide, AISIN is the fifth largest Tier One supplier of automotive components and systems. AISIN Group is the largest manufacturer of automatic transmissions in the world and employs over 120,000 team members at 208 consolidated companies. A new corporate logo and slogan are introduced. The logo symbolizes AISIN's philosophy: "Inspiring movement, creating tomorrow." The new brand slogan: "We Touch the Future" represents the entire AISIN Group, brought together by each employee's dreams and aspirations to create a future of safe and comfortable mobility for all." As we move ahead into the future, we continue to strive for delivering quality transmission products that will exceed our customer's expectations.
