The only place in North America that builds engines, transmissions and hybrid transaxles under one roof is Toyota West Virginia. The plant assembles products for the Avalon, Camry, Corolla, Highlander, Highlander Hybrid, Lexus ES, Lexus RX350, RAV4, Sienna and Sienna Hybrid. Today, the plant’s 2,000-employee workforce cranks out more than 1 million engines and transmissions per year. A new transmission rolls off the assembly line about every 25 seconds, with four-cylinder engines completed just under 30 seconds.
Toyota West Virginia’s employees are notably skilled, passionate and talented — a contributing factor to why the facility has been expanded nine times. Toyota has invested $1.8 billion in the plant making it one of the largest companies in the state.
