Toyota Alabama expands production with 350 new jobs

Toyota is growing its Huntsville plant production capabilities with a US$282 million investment and adding more than 350 new, high-quality jobs with long-term stability, affirming its commitment to reinvesting profits in its U.S. operations. This brings the total investment in Toyota Alabama to more than US$1.7 billion. The plant is already an engine powerhouse, and this venture adds new lines for drivetrain products.

“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 Jason Puckett, Toyota Alabama President. “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 dedicated team members who assembled more than 770,000 engines in 2023.

“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. “Toyota was my first job in manufacturing, and now I lead my own team. I’m ready to help both current and future team members learn the skills they’ll need for this project.”

Toyota Alabama currently supplies engines to seven Toyota vehicle plants in North America. The Huntsville-assembled engines power the Corolla, Corolla Cross, Highlander, RAV4, Sequoia, Sienna, Tacoma and Tundra.
