Toyota’s US manufacturing unit said it would add six-speed automatic transmission capacity at its plant in Buffalo, West Virginia – the US$64m investment will create approximately 40 new jobs.

Toyota Motor Manufacturing West Virginia (TMMWV) currently builds six-speed transmissions for V6 engine models including the Avalon, Camry, Lexus RX350, Sienna and Venza.

The expansion will bring TMMWV’s annual transmission capacity to nearly 400,000 and raises total employment to approximately 1,100 and total plant investment to $1.26bn.

Meanwhile, Bodine Aluminum facilities in Jackson, Tennessee, and Troy, Missouri, will also add capacity to support TMMWV. Start of production at all three facilities is expected by the end of 2012.

The two Bodine plants will provide transmission cases and housing parts to the West Virginia plant.  The $8.4m expansion will increase Bodine’s capacity by more than 320,000 units annually, adding about 20 new jobs.
