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!"

Thinking about working for a brewery? Good news, business is BOOMING in #WestVirginia
However it's important to know if you have what it takes, so check out these top 3 traits to have shared from Celine Frueh (Human Resources Director at Allagash Brewing Company).
Gratitude is an important trait—what we have found in our most successful employees—are people who can feel grateful about something. They might be grateful for the coffee in the breakroom or things in their personal life; if it’s a trait that you go through your life with, that’s appealing to us because you’re going to add positivity to the workplace.
Be Passionate about what you do- not just beer
Anyone who works hard and has a passion for excellence in their work, whether it’s accounting or packaging on a production line, can be a great addition to the craft beer industry. “We found that people who have a strong work ethic, prioritize doing the job correctly and treat coworkers with respect, work out best for us. Appreciation for beer can come with time, but these personality traits are harder to cultivate.”
Frueh often interviews prospective employees by asking questions that don’t necessarily have a right or wrong answer, but rather provides an opportunity for the candidate to showcase their personality. She’s also keeping a keen ear out for a positive vibe. “I used to think even if someone doesn’t have a positive outlook on things, well, we have a great workplace, so they can get on board and be more positive. But I have consistently found that folks who complain a lot, or see things in a negative way, tend to drag down their teams. I now know that employees that are more positive, tend to contribute more to our culture in a productive and positive way.”
