Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Montgomery, AL

Governor Robert Bentley on Thursday commented on news that Toyota plans to expand its Huntsville engine production facility, investing an additional $80 million and adding at least 125 new jobs. The expansion will bring total investment at Toyota's Alabama plant to more than $700 million and the total number of jobs to more than 1,150.

Governor Bentley made the following statement:

"Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama has been a dedicated corporate citizen in Alabama for more than ten years, and today's announcement is an exciting new chapter for this company and this community. Toyota's success in Alabama is a testament to the hard-working men and women of the production and leadership teams who have dedicated themselves to producing quality products. This expansion is also a testament to the business climate we've worked hard to create in Alabama -- a climate in which companies are encouraged to expand, innovate, and create new jobs. We thank Toyota for the company's continued confidence in Alabama and Huntsville, and we look forward to a continued long-term relationship."

By spring of 2014, the new assembly line will add an additional 216,000 to annual V-6 engine capacity, increasing total engine production at the Huntsville plant to more than 700,000 annually.
