PRINCETON (August 22, 2014) – Toyota Indiana announced plans today to expand its operations here, creating up to 300 new jobs by 2016.
“Indiana is a state that works when it comes to building the cars that keep America moving forward,” said Governor Mike Pence. “Hoosier-built products like the Toyota Highlander are known around the world for their precision and quality. And with suppliers in all corners of the state, Toyota is helping to strengthen and grow Indiana’s economy.”
The company will invest $100 million to boost production of the Highlander midsize sport utility vehicle at its Princeton plant. Since production of the third-generation Highlander began in the Indiana plant in December 2013, sales have been strong. From January through July 2014, Toyota sold about 90,000 Highlanders, an increase of 16 percent over the same period the previous year.
