Toyota has announced it will increase annual engine assembly capacity of 4-cylinder engines by more than 100,000 at its plant in Georgetown.

The increase will begin August 2013. The approximately $30 million project will create about 80 new jobs.

Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky currently assembles engines for the Avalon, Camry and Venza, all built at TMMK. The capacity increase will supply engines for TMMK’s Camry and Camry Hybrid and RAV4 in Woodstock, Ontario.

The increase will raise TMMK total employment to approximately 6,700 and total plant investment to more than $5.96 billion.

This investment will increase engine production at the Kentucky plant to more than 500,000 annually, and will increase total engine production in the US to more than 1.2 million per year. Toyota also has engine plants in Alabama and West Virginia.
