After strong year, Toyota Alabama to begin hiring amid growth plans

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — Toyota’s Alabama engine plant notched a strong performance in 2019, and it is kicking off 2020 with plans to fill 450 new jobs, the company said Monday.

Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama produced about 610,000 engines last year, or roughly 2,500 per day.

The plant’s output powers one-third of Toyota vehicles built in North America, which means the Huntsville workforce plays a critical role in the supply chain for the global automaker. It’s also the only Toyota plant to produce 4-cylinder, V6 and V8 engines under one roof.

In March, Toyota announced plans to spend $288 million on two new production lines that will increase annual engine capacity to 900,000 by the end of 2021.
