Associations & Organizations
Established in 1982, AIAG is a not-for-profit association where professionals from a diverse group of stakeholders – including retailers, suppliers of all sizes, automakers, manufacturers, service providers, academia, and government – work collaboratively to streamline industry processes via global standards development & harmonized business practices.
At AIAG, everything we do is inspired by our enduring mission, values and vision. Our vision statement guides every aspect of our business:
The organization was founded by visionaries from the three largest North American automotive manufacturers – Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors. Membership has grown to include Japanese companies such as Toyota, Honda and Nissan, and many of their part suppliers and services providers.
We promote our objectives primarily by publishing standards and offering educational conferences and training. Member companies donate the time of volunteers to work at AIAG in a non-competitive, open forum that is intended to develop recommendations, guidelines and best practices for the overall good of the industry. Over 900 industry volunteers provide subject matter expertise to AIAG initiatives.
AIAG membership offers:
A Uniquely Collaborative Environment: All key stakeholders engage in an open, neutral, legal and professional forum focused on addressing emerging threats to the sustainable growth of our industry.
A Connection: An industry voice carries more weight than that on an individual company. Members not only hear about new regulations, standards and requirements first; they help to shape them.
Powerful Networking Solutions: Subject matter experts from all sectors of the automotive supply chain work TOGETHER to initiate projects that produce working solutions to critical industry problems and/or share best practices to eliminate redundant systems and processes that will positively impact the way they do business… and their bottom line.
As an AIAG member, you and your company can influence and help streamline the automotive industry’s commercial processes. As the global marketplace demands more cooperation and partnering, AIAG’s position in the industry will continue to help you grow.
