"We are proud to add such a significant cost investment to Toyota West Virginia - not only financially but also in adding team members to the Toyota family", said Leah Curry, Toyota Motor Manufacturing, West Virginia, Inc. president.

Jim Justice said the investment is a big boost for the Mountain State.

As Toyota announced a massive expansion at five locations across the country on Thursday - the largest of which is taking place in Huntsville - Trump tweeted out his congratulations. "But these decisions we're making today are really driven by consumers and our product portfolio going forward, for the most part". Instead, it reflects Toyota's plan to build multiple vehicles at its plants to better insulate each facility from downturns in market cycles.

Toyota Motor Corp. says it is investing an additional $750 million at five US plants that will bring almost 600 new jobs.

The company got millions in state tax incentives when it upgraded the plant for the new process.

Toyota says its latest investment will create 586 new jobs.

Toyota Motor Manufacturing West Virginia announced a multimillion dollar investment at its Putnam County plant on Thursday.

The new investment announced Thursday is the initial amount for projects that include adding the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, and a Lexus ES 300h hybrid to production at its Georgetown, Kentucky plant, according to the statement.

The $111 million project is expected to bring 123 new jobs to the plant in Buffalo, the company said. The senator said 230 employers will be represented at the job fair from 11 a.m.to 3 p.m. Friday, March 22, at the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center.

Leaders with the company said they will mainly invest in their equipment and infrastructure to start building hybrid engine blocks. The plant has the capacity of 12,000 units.

Toyota has announced a plan to boost investment in several of its US production facilities.

"Toyota has been a remarkable corporate partner to the commonwealth for the past 30 years, and we thank the company for its continued commitment to Kentucky". "By boosting our USA manufacturing footprint, we can better serve our customers and dealers and position our manufacturing plants for future success with more domestic capacity".
