In 1995, NGK Spark Plugs opened its doors in Sissonville, making it the first major Japanese manufacturer in the state. The state-of-the-art facility is located on a 40-acre campus, which includes manufacturing and warehouse space. Initial oxygen sensor production began in 1995 and spark plug production began in 2008.
