Toyota to invest $36M in Jackson plant

Jackson plant

Toyota has announced that it will invest $36 million in its Jackson manufacturing plant as part of $383 million being invested in its U.S. production operations. This is the second major investment Toyota has announced at its Jackson facility this year. The Jackson plant is already responsible for number of crucial parts of the assembly process for many vehicles, including engine blocks for all vehicles sold in North America. The investment will allow the facility to produce more than 2 million engine blocks annually, which is being done in advance of the company’s commitment to vehicle electrification in four of its U.S. manufacturing plants that build the heart of new Toyota and Lexus vehicles. The new investment supports the production of four-cylinder engines, including options for hybrid electric vehicles, also at its Alabama, Kentucky and Missouri.
