Toyota Bodine expands facility, plans more jobs in Troy
Associated Industries of Missouri member company Toyota Bodine announced Thursday it will invest $3 million into its facility in Troy.
The investment will allow the plant to expand and to add 35 new employees. The city of Troy is doing its part by improving the road that leads to the facility.
“We appreciate the support from the state and city that helped make this expansion possible, and look forward to many more prosperous years to come in Troy,” said Bob Lloyd, president of Bodine Aluminum.
Bodine Aluminum was originally founded in St. Louis in 1912 and is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation. In 1990, the company opened a 14,000-sq. ft. plant to supply automotive parts for Toyota Motor Manufacturing. Currently, the plant covers 500,000 sq. ft. and 465 employees manufacture four cylinder, six cylinder and eight cylinder aluminum castings as well as transmission cases and housing parts for Toyota plants throughout North America.
