GLOBAL POWER: Alabama engine operations fill key role for automakers

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – Alabama is not only one of the top producers of vehicles in the U.S., it’s also a major source of the power under their hoods.

Last year, state manufacturers combined to turn out more than 1.75 million engines, and those assembly lines continue to achieve new milestones this year.

Leading the pack is Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama (TMMAL), which produced a record high 702,014 engines in 2016, an 11 percent increase from the previous year.

“Five million, that’s incredible. You just don’t think in those terms.”
The $864 million engine plant supplies engines for six different Toyota vehicles, and today, it marked the completion of its 5 millionth engine since opening in 2003.
