The plant, which will build the Toyota Corolla along with other models, is a huge win for President administration which has made a point of stressing it would add manufacturing jobs, especially in the auto industry. " Elsewhere in the state, the auto industry continued to power forward in 2017".

The state of Alabama is the fifth largest producer of cars and light trucks nationally, with a strong automotive manufacturing presence.
