Toyota expands Tacoma production

Toyota Motor Corporation has announced an expansion of its Baja California, Mexico plant, to be completed by 2007. The plant, which currently produces 30,000 midsized Tacoma trucks yearly, will be able to produce 50,000 upon completion.

This expansion is just the latest for the Baja plant, which has grown several times since it opened in 2004. The world’s second largest automaker has not stated how many new workers will need to be hired to join the current staff of 800, primarily local residents from nearby Tijuana and Tecate.

Toyota is also constructing a new plant to build its full-sized Tundra pickups in Texas, U.S. and a plant to build SUVs in Canada.
