A major investment is coming for the Toyota Tundra plant in San Antonio, Texas, to create more supplier parts on site and add jobs. This plant also builds the Sequoia.

The San Antonio Express-News reported the news first of a public records request for a $531.7 million tax abatement.

According to the public records request, the project would “allow the automaker to manufacture components for vehicle lines at the complex,” Automotive News confirmed.

It would also add an estimated 411 jobs to the complex.

About the Toyota Tundra plant

The San Antonio Texas plant, TMMTX, had been home to the Tundra and Tacoma production until 2022. Tacoma production moved to Mexico, joining some Tacoma production already happening in Baja Mexico. The Sequoia moved to Texas from the Princeton, Indiana, plant, TMMI, to be built alongside the shared platform of the Tundra.

TMMTX, which opened in 2006, employs more than 3,800 people according to Toyota. There are also more than 20 on-site suppliers that employ an additional 5,600 workers.

These suppliers work in tandem with the production plant to deliver just-in-time parts and it is a seamless experience as we have witnessed several times visiting the plant.

Bringing the parts from other locations into the plant, as AutoNews confirmed, would allow Toyota to improve their production flow of new vehicles.
