Toyota announced today that it has invested $210M in the expansion of its West Virginian manufacturing location to help meet the customer demand.
This exciting expansion will bring 100 new jobs as the company upgrades an existing engine production line in Buffalo, West Virginia!
The 100 new jobs will create a third shift due to a significant increase in RAV4 engine production at the Buffalo site, increasing assembly of an additional 5,900 engines per month, or more than 70,000 engines per year. The upgrade project and hiring will be complete in the second half of 2022.
West Virginia Governor Jim Justice commented that “This is such exciting news for West Virginia’s business community as well as our families that businesses are choosing to grow their organizations here. Toyota is a wonderful example of how a global company can be successful right here in West Virginia.”
Today’s announcement of 100 new jobs and its continued investment in the state is certainly a testament to the team in Buffalo and the West Virginia workforce.
The Governor also commented, "I am looking forward to continuing to work with Toyota officials to foster more long-term investments in the West Virginia economy, communities, and people!"
