12/06/2017
Toyota Boshoku Tennessee will invest $31 million to expand its operations in Jackson, Tennessee. The company plans to create 139 jobs in Madison County.

Toyota Boshoku, one of the world’s premium interior systems suppliers and filter manufacturers, develops and produces interior, filtration, and powertrain components for the automotive sector. As part of its expansion the company will add 143,000 additional square-feet to its current facility in Jackson. It will also consolidate its welding operations and add new equipment to its Madison County location.

“We are very excited to announce this expansion in Jackson, Tennessee to be able to better serve our customers, extend job security to our current team members and to provide additional employment for the area. The support from the city of Jackson and Madison County has been greatly appreciated since 2001,” Toyota Boshoku Tennessee President Kimihiko Sumino said.

“Tennessee is known for its strength in the automotive sector and it is because of companies like Toyota Boshoku that the automotive industry in Tennessee continues to grow and excel,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “I appreciate Toyota Boshoku for expanding its operations in Jackson and creating more than 130 jobs in Madison County. Investments like this are bringing us one step closer to making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

“I want to congratulate Toyota Boshoku on its decision to expand in Madison County and invest $31 million in Jackson,” Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe said. “Tennessee’s concentration of automotive employment is more than three times the national average. Toyota Boshoku currently employs 242 Tennesseans in the automotive sector and we thank the company for continuing to strengthen this industry in Tennessee by creating 139 new automotive jobs in Jackson.”

“Toyota Boshoku Tennessee made an excellent decision to expand in Jackson,” Jackson Mayor Jerry Gist said. “This investment means more jobs for the region. It is no surprise more companies are responding to our positive business climate and the strong local and state economic development partnership we have developed.”
