Toyota Facility in Kentucky Sees Ample Engine Growth
No automobile manufacturing facility is perfect. If one were, there would be no room for improvement. That being said, Tri-State Toyota thinks many of the stand-out Toyota facilities within our walls come pretty close. In fact, the only problem that the automaker's plant in Georgetown, KY is facing right now is that the brand has so many new Toyota vehicles in demand and not enough engines to fill them.
Of course, such is a conundrum that Toyota is more than happy to have. In order to support rising demand for autos such as the Toyota Camry and Toyota RAV4, the automaker announced it will bump up the annual capacity of 4-cylinder engines by more than 100,000 at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky (TMMK).
Wil James, TMMK President, proudly exclaims, "This is great news for our team members and our company. This project is the result of the strong partnerships we have locally and across the state, which will help grow our business and strengthen the communities where we do business."1
On top of ramping up powertrain output in Kentucky, Toyota has injected new fiscal backing into several other U.S.-based plants this year. Toyota facilities in Indiana and West Virginia have also seen expansion and the cumulative investment totals around $565 million and 1,000 new jobs.
