Toyota Indiana recently announced it has concluded a $1.3 billion modernization project and that it has committed an additional $1 million to a new regional workforce program.
The modernization project included the installation of new equipment, retooling and advanced manufacturing technologies, has created a total of 550 new jobs and posted $1.3 billion in total new investment. Furthermore, the project paved the way to meet the considerable demand for the all-new 2020 Toyota Highlander.
Toyota Indiana President Leah Curry presented the $1 million donation for the regional workforce program to the 4T Manufacturing Academy in Princeton.
“This regional workforce program will allow students to get a jump-start on their careers while receiving hands-on training with industry experts and educators,” Curry said in a press release. “By collaborating with our local schools, we are creating a workforce solution but, more importantly, providing greater visibility to student career options and pathways in the region.”
