The new supplier's facility will be located on the Mazda-Toyota Manufacturing U.S.A. site. The supplier said it already works with Mazda in Japan.
Now, the new facility will make it convenient for parts to be brought to the Mazda-Toyota venture plant that will be located next door. The supplier said it plans on hiring people who live in North Alabama.
The supplier said it plans to open in 2021, when production starts at the Mazda-Toyota manufacturing plant.
