NPR Stories on New Toyota Plant
It's official, that Toyota has selected a site near Tupelo, Mississippi for their next U.S. factory (Google News search here).
Thanks to Pete Abilla, he sent links to three NPR stories from this morning.
Toyota has continued its trend of locating in the South, in non-union areas, and in a place where they can be the “big dog” of the area. Toyota likes being the primary employer where they can command the cream of the crop of area employees and seems like that will be the case in Mississippi. The Toyota plant will, however, be about three hours away from Nissan's Canton MS plant.
