4/15/2019 Group Watch: New Jobs Coming to Athens

Last week, Governor Ivey announced that Toyota will build its supplier facility about 30 miles from the $1.6 billion MTMUS plant being built in eastern Limestone County. The $50 million manufacturing facility will bring 400 new jobs to Athens in a ripple effect of the giant Mazda Toyota Manufacturing USA plant under construction in Huntsville. This facility is the first announcement of “indirect Jobs” to come to north Alabama as a result of the Mazda Toyota plant. These indirect jobs are expected to be possibly more than twice as many as the 4,000 direct jobs coming to the MTMUS plant once it is operating at full capacity.
