By: | July 2nd, 2024

Toyota announced a $282 million investment in Huntsville, Alabama. This investment is toward expanding the plant production capabilities and will create over 350 new high-quality jobs as well as new drivetrain production lines.

Thanks to our Alabama team members’ daily commitment to quality and continuous improvement, we know they can rise to the challenge of all-new production lines,” said Toyota Alabama President Jason Puckett in a statement. “The new lines will further increase the plant’s flexibility and reaffirm Toyota’s commitment to our team and community.

This facility is Toyota’s largest engine producer in North America, with 2,000 employees. In 2023, over 770,000 engines were assembled at Toyota Alabama. With the latest investment, the company has invested over $1.7 billion into the Alabama campus since its opening in 2003. Toyota Alabama supplies engines to seven North American Toyota vehicle plants, used for the models Corolla, Corolla Cross, Highlander, RAV4, Sequoia, Sienna, Tacoma, and Tundra.

Toyota has been a critical partner within Alabama’s growing auto industry for over two decades, launching multiple expansions that have increased the Huntsville facility’s production capabilities and its superb workforce,” Governor Kay Ivey said. “This new investment project will build on the great legacy of Toyota’s Alabama engine plant and create even more new opportunities for the area’s citizens,” she added.
