Mississippi's Toyota Auto Body Confirmed to Supply Toyota Parts

Auto Parts Manufacturing Mississippi, Inc., the U.S. operations of Toyota Auto Body Co., Ltd., will move forward with its plans to provide stamped parts, body weld parts and plastic parts to the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Mississippi plant at Blue Springs.

Governor Haley Barbour announced the restart of construction on the $200 million facility in Baldwyn on July 30.

The plant is expected to employ close to 300 people.

A Japanese newspaper reported the work was resuming two weeks ago, but at the time, local industry experts told WTVA it was just a rumor.

The Governor says he expects other suppliers to the Toyota Mississippi plant in Blue Springs to announce resumption of work soon.
