It’s always been DENSO’s core operating philosophy to be close to our customers in the regions in which we operate,” said Hikaru “Howard” Sugi, president and CEO of DENSO International America, Inc. “We’re proud to extend our network and welcome Montgomery into the DENSO family.”

DENSO will be leasing an existing 103,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Montgomery, Ala. and will employ approximately 45 employees in a three-shift operation.
