Dakkota, one of the largest Native American woman-owned and led companies in the United States, manages supply chain complexity for customers.
Dakkota was established in 2001 as a joint venture between majority partner Rush Group LLC and Magna International Inc. to manage the complete assembly and sequencing of modules for OEMs and Tier One suppliers.
The company specializes in seamless delivery that reduces complexity, time, labor and materials costs through the use of specially-trained employees, automation, process data validation, and proprietary materials management processes.
Dakkota is intensely dedicated to diversity and inclusion, specifically providing opportunities to underserved neighborhoods. In fact, Dakkota was founded as a training ground to help people facing societal barriers gain the skills and experience needed for fulfilling careers.
Today, Dakkota is committed to helping their employees and the communities where they are located improve quality of life for this generation and the next. Dakkota employs more than 2,500 people in the United States and Canada in 14 locations, some of which are specifically located in repurposed buildings in areas that have seen significant exodus of jobs and industries.
As a purpose-driven company, Dakkota is a change agent because of how it operates. The company fulfills an important need for large companies who have made diversity part of hiring and procurement processes, while getting the highest quality products at a fair price. Dakkota also supports and mentors other minority-owned suppliers who are part of its assembly and sequencing processes.
To be the most respected and inclusive organization, helping to transform individuals, communities, and the manufacturing industry.
We will actively engage and delight customers, employees and suppliers with our safety, quality, inclusion, and opportunities through purposeful leadership, recruitment, training, and operations resulting in profitable growth.
