Toyota Alabama to expand production

The engine factory is investing $282 million and adding 350 jobs

Toyota Alabama has announced it is expanding with an investment of $282 million and creating 350 new jobs.

The growth project brings the auto engine maker’s total investment in Huntsville to $1.7 billion since its start in 2003.

“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,” said Gov. Kay Ivey.

Jason Puckett, Toyota Alabama president, said, “The new lines will further increase the plant’s flexibility and reaffirm Toyota’s commitment to our team and community.”

Toyota Alabama is the company’s largest engine producer in North America, employing more than 2,000 team members who assembled more than 770,000 engines in 2023. It currently supplies engines to seven Toyota plants in North America, including Mazda Toyota Manufacturing USA, also in Huntsville.

Earlier this year, Toyota began production on a new turbo engine line, after completing a $222 million investment announced in 2022.

“I’ve been a part of building high-quality Toyota engines for eight years, and I’m excited for the opportunity to bring new products to our plant,” said Marcus Calhoun, a Toyota Alabama team leader.
