    The Sacoma Story

    “We value our customers. We focus on quality. We protect the environment. We respect integrity and diversity.”


    The Sacoma story is fairly simple.  We’re a small company that achieves great things.  Founded in 1989, we design and manufacture metal stamped and assembled products and engineered solutions for the light vehicle, commercial vehicle, and non-road markets.  We are very good at what we do; we count many of the world’s largest corporations among our customers.  We keep them supplied from two locations in central Indiana, Edinburgh and Columbus.  Sacoma is a design and engineering-driven company, working with customers to optimize performance and manufacturing efficiency from the initial design stage through mature products.  If there’s a better way, we’ll find it.  Our focus on continuous improvement applies to how we manage our supply chain, which has earned Sacoma the distinction as a preferred strategic supply chain partner.  Sacoma is privately owned and operated and as such, we are loyal to the communities in which we live and work.  We protect the environment, expect ethical behavior and integrity, and respect diversity. It’s who we are and we’re proud of it.
