HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Toyota Alabama announced that it had reached two milestones in the month of July: the start of production on a new, redesigned 4-cylinder engine and the closing in of the plant's new 150,000 square-foot V6 engine assembly line.
“These milestones represent significant achievements and further demonstrate Toyota’s long-term commitment to build where we sell,” said Dave Finch, Toyota Alabama president. “By boosting production capacity and flexibility, our dedicated work force can better serve customers and position our operations for stability and future success.”
The plant is expected to add 450 new jobs to Huntsville upon its completion in 2021. According to Toyota, this represents a $1.2 billion investment solidifying Huntsville at the automaker's largest engine producer in North America.
As of July 8, Toyota has committed nearly $9 billion of the announced total.
