A major investment is coming to the Toyota Tundra plant in San Antonio, Texas, to build more parts suppliers at the site and add jobs. This plant also forms Sequoia.

I San Antonio Express-News first reported the news in a public records request for the $531.7 million tax abatement.

According to a public records request, the project “will allow the automaker to manufacture parts for its vehicle lines in the area,” Car News confirmed.

It will also add an estimated 411 jobs to the complex.

About the Toyota Tundra factory

The San Antonio Texas plant, TMMTX, was home to Tundra and Tacoma production until 2022. Tacoma production moved to Mexico, joining Tacoma production already taking place in Baja Mexico. Sequoia moved to Texas from the Princeton, Indiana, plant, TMMI, to be built around the Tundra's shared platform.

TMMTX, which opened in 2006, employs more than 3,800 people according to Toyota. More than 20 on-site suppliers employ an additional 5,600 workers.

These suppliers work closely with the manufacturing plant to deliver the parts on time and it is a seamless experience as we have seen many times visiting the plant.

Bringing parts from other parts of the industry, as AutoNews has confirmed, will allow Toyota to improve its production of new cars.
