Alabama Automotive Manufacturers Association

Welcome to AAMA

Accelerating Alabama’s Automotive Industry

Alabama’s automotive industry is a force to be reckoned with.
Five major OEMs call our state home, including Honda Development and Manufacturing of America, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing, Mazda Toyota Manufacturing, Mercedes-Benz U.S. International and Toyota Motor Manufacturing, serving as a foundation for a network of Tier 1 and 2 suppliers, smaller manufacturers and suppliers and service providers that establish Alabama as a major hub of the automotive industry. Alabama is one of the leading states for vehicle assembly and production and growth continues to accelerate as more and more manufacturers and suppliers locate facilities in the state.

At the Alabama Automotive Manufacturers Association (AAMA), our goal is to help our industry thrive and to champion initiatives that provide opportunities for success for companies big and small. Our association leads conversations that make an impact and drives innovative ideas forward with a collaborative, visionary mindset. We invite you to join us as we continue to advance automotive manufacturing across Alabama and pave a path of progress for vehicles made in the South.
