Hoosier Grown Toyota Rolling Out in April

The first Hoosier grown Toyota Camry should be rolling out of Subaru of Indiana’s Lafayette factory on April 20th.

Under an agreement made with Fuji Heavy Industries Toyota was able to start production in one year instead of the normal three years it would have taken to build a plant from scratch.

“Subaru will make the Camrys at its only U.S. factory under a contract from Toyota and expects to hire 650 full-time and 450 part-time workers.

The deal allowed Toyota to start making cars about a year after its announcement, instead of the three years it normally takes to build a factory from scratch, said Toyota spokesman Mike Goss.

“We share a lot of the same manufacturing philosophies with Subaru, so it’s really been a good match,” he said.

Subaru expects to reach full production for its first shift on the new Camry line by July, and then complete the second shift by November, spokeswoman Ann McConnell said.”

Hoping to reach full production by July, Subaru has fielded over 18,00 applications for an approximate 650 full-time and 450 part-time jobs.

“The Lafayette Redevelopment Department provided 10-year tax abatements on the investment because of the new jobs, director Dennis Carson said.

“This is one of the biggest economic development deals for 2006 anywhere,” he said. “When you get Toyota in town, that’s a good thing.”
