AIDT, Alabama’s workforce training program, will be providing pre-employment training for Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama’s (TMMAL) expanding engine plant in Huntsville, Alabama. The expansion, which will create at least 125 new jobs in Alabama, is expected to be complete by the spring of 2014. Details about the application and training process will be announced later in the year.
Alabama Governor Robert Bentley said “Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama has been a dedicated corporate citizen in Alabama for more than ten years, and today’s announcement is an exciting new chapter for this company and this community.”
“Toyota is a perfect example of what building strong international partnerships can achieve in Alabama,” said Alabama Department of Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield.
“We’re very happy about Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama’s announcement today. TMMAL’s decision to invest in Alabama again is a testament to the quality of our workforce here in Alabama.” AIDT Executive Director Ed Castile said.
Founded in 1971, AIDT is Alabama’s Workforce Training agency and encourages economic development through job-specific training. Training services are offered in many areas, at no cost, to new and expanding businesses throughout Alabama.
