Gov. Jim Justice and Senator Joe Manchin, speaking separately on MetroNews' "Talkline", confirmed a major investment at West Virginia's Toyota plant.

In Huntsville, engine production capacity will increase from 670,000 to 900,000 with the expansion by the end of 2021.

Employees are building 2,600 engines a day.

Toyota's latest announcement is an add-on to a plan first announced in 2017. At the time, the average total hourly compensation for jobs at the plant was $45.47 - more than $90,000 a year for 40 hours of work a week, according to state documents.

"So this new announcement is for a new 4-cylinder and a V6 engine line", said David Fernandes, Huntsville Plant President.

"It means from all across north Alabama and even into south Tennessee, we'll be providing employment for people, and they'll have jobs, and it'll add to our economy", said Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle. She was represented by Greg Canfield, the state's secretary of commerce. It is the only Toyota plant in the world that produces 4-cylinder, 6-cylinder and 8-cylinder engines under one roof.

Democrats speculate that the report might have enough evidence to support an impeachment effort against the president. Doug Collins, said the vote on the resolution was unnecessary but that he would support it anyway.

Manchin described a continued commitment by the company and its workforce. "The new engine lines will allow us to respond quicker to customer needs and strengthen our competitive edge in the industry". "I'm excited to see how this new venture will continue to benefit our local communities and know West Virginia workers will be eager to fill the 123 new jobs coming to TMMWV". Doug Jones said in the announcement.

"We are proud to add such a significant cost investment to Toyota West Virginia - not only financially but also in adding team members to the Toyota family", stated Leah Curry, president of Toyota Manufacturing West Virginia.

"One-third of Toyota vehicles built in North America are powered by engines produced right here", said Clark. "I thank Toyota for supporting these good, American jobs, and I am proud to stand up for our American workers against any trade policies that would make it harder for automakers like Toyota to keep Alabamians on the job".

Toyota plans to bring two new engine lines to the Huntsville engine manufacturing plant, which will account for 450 new jobs in Huntsville, officials said Thursday morning. "Doubling our production of hybrid transaxles in West Virginia solidifies our facility's role in producing next generation engines and transmissions that will drive the future of Toyota's advanced mobility technology".

The Georgetown plant additions are part of $750 million in new investment in production in five states. "Toyota's decision to expand the Huntsville plant further cements Alabama's global reputation as a premier location for automobile manufacturing".
