The Tennessee Automotive Manufacturers Association (TAMA) was formed in 1987 in response to Tennessee's rapidly growing automotive manufacturing industry led by Nissan North America and General Motors - Spring Hill (originally Saturn Corporation).
TAMA helps Tennessee automotive companies, especially suppliers, react to the challenges of the global automotive marketplace.
TAMA's original purpose was to provide a forum for interaction among the many companies choosing to locate or form in Tennessee. The organization has since expanded its scope to include in- and out-of-state businesses as well as companies integrally related to the automotive industry.
