PRINCETON, Ind. – Toyota Indiana (TMMI) announced the addition of 30 production team members. The tentative hire date is expected to be in August.
The new team members will be hired from Toyota’s variable workforce at the plant. The variable workforce is staffed by Aerotek. Those interested in positions with Aerotek are encouraged to apply at Aerotekin.com.
Earlier this year, TMMI added 75 new positions, but this is the first production hiring since the Japan earthquake and tsunami interrupted the parts supply and limited production. “We are excited to be back to full production. I believe the addition of new team members is a good sign for our plant and our community,” said Kelly Dillon, TMMI’s spokesperson.
Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana began production in Princeton, Ind., in 1998. Today, TMMI employs about 4,100 team members from the Tri-State. Inside the 4-million-square-foot automotive manufacturing facility, team members produce the Sequoia full-size sport utility vehicle, Sienna minivan and Highlander midsize sport utility vehicle. Toyota’s total investment in TMMI is $3.7 billion.
TMMI has paid over $53 million in local property taxes since 1997 and donated more than $13 million since 1996 to local community organizations.
