WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) - Toyota is investing $90 million in its Buffalo manufacturing plant.
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin announced Friday the automaker's investment will create about 80 jobs.
Tomblin says Toyota Motor Manufacturing West Virginia Inc. plans to increase production of 6-speed automatic transmissions by 20,000 per month by early 2015. The transmissions are produced for the Avalon, Camry, Lexus RX350, Sienna and Venza.
It marks the eighth expansion of the 1,300-employee facility since it opened in 1996.
Tomblin made the announcement at the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce's annual meeting at The Greenbrier resort.
