Reports: Toyota-Mazda plant to be built in Alabama

Local News

(WIAT) — Alabama has been chosen as the home of a new Toyota-Mazda manufacturing plant over North Carolina, according to reports from the Birmingham Business Journal. 

The Birmingham Business Journal states that the new plant is expected to cost around $1.6 billion dollars will probably be built on a mega site in Limestone County. The project is expected to create 4,000 jobs. 

The News & Observer in North Carolina reports they were told by a source that the plant was awarded to Alabama as NC does not have the supply chain logistics that the car companies want.
