Toyota and Mazda, Japanese automakers, announced plans to build a $1.6 billion plant in Alabama that will employ close to 4,000 people. Several states competed for the project, which will produce 300,000 vehicles annually. It will see the production of a new Mazda SUV and the Toyota Corolla. The company will be built in the Huntsville area not far from the Tennessee border. The project is expected to begin by 2021. Governor Kay Ivey, Alabama governor, thanked Toyota and Mazda for believing in the people’s potential. “Welcome to sweet home Alabama,” she said.

Alabama offered an incentive package for investment rebates and tax abatements of $370 million. Not included in that amount is a local incentive package, which is still being finalized. The state agreed to provide workforce training. President of Toyota Motors, Akio Toyoda, said the facility is like a homecoming since Toyota already has a plant in the state, fourteen miles from the new facility.

Foreign-based automakers are creating a trend in building factories in the southern part of the U.S. The states are using a combination of low-cost labor, lucrative incentive packages, and a pro-business labor environment. The United Auto Workers Union is much stronger in the northern part of America. Tennessee and Alabama tied as the fifth-largest producer of vehicles in the U.S. As more companies relocate to the U.S., jobs will be available.
