Twenty-five years ago, Bill Jones of North Vernon went to work for a little-known Japanese auto parts maker in Seymour.
On Tuesday, Jones and 66 of his co-workers with 25 years of service were given the opportunity to participate in Aisin U.S.A. Manufacturing Inc.’s silver anniversary celebration at its main plant in Seymour.
