Toyota Expands Engine Capacity

Toyota Motor Manufacturing North America Inc. (TMMNA), based in Erlanger, Ky., reported that it will expand its Buffalo, W. Va., plant to manufacture V-6 engines. The 300,000-square-foot expansion will entail a $300 million investment and add 300 new jobs. "With our North American vehicle production growing, there is need for increased engine production as well," said TMMNA President Mikio Kitano. Additionally, the automaker said its Bodine Aluminum plant in Troy, Mo., will undergo an $80 million expansion to supply the V-6 engines. The Bodine plant manufactures cast engine parts.
