Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Toyota says it is hiring the first wave of new employees this fall for an expected 400-person addition to the work force at its southwestern Indiana factory.

Toyota officials said Monday that they planned to have about 240 more production workers on the job at the Princeton factory by the end of November.

The hiring comes after the company announced in February that it would spend $400 million on the factory so that it can build 50,000 more Highlander SUVs a year. The plant built more than 101,000 Highlanders last year.

Toyota says the factory where Sienna minivans and Sequoia SUVs are also built now has about 4,100 workers. The rest of the new employees are expected to be hired next year.
