Supplier Toyota Boshoku to build Alabama manufacturing facility, creating 400 jobs

ATHENS, Alabama — Governor Kay Ivey joined representatives of Toyota Boshoku America and local leaders in Limestone County today to announce that the global automotive supplier plans to invest over $50 million to open a manufacturing facility in Athens, creating a total of around 400 jobs once full production is reached.

The new Alabama factory will produce seat systems for vehicles built at Mazda Toyota Manufacturing USA (MTMUS), a joint venture assembly plant the automakers are constructing about 30 miles away in Huntsville.

Toyota Boshoku is the first supplier to announce plans for an Alabama facility to produce parts for MTMUS, which is expected to assemble its first vehicle in 2021.

“Toyota Boshoku is a premier manufacturer of automotive interior systems and a welcome addition to Alabama’s growing constellation of world-class auto suppliers,” Governor Ivey said.
