San Antonio Manufacturing Jobs Supported by Toyota

One well-known automobile company is continuing to support San Antonio manufacturing jobs.

At a recent ceremony celebrating the launch of the Toyota Tacoma - which is being built at Toyota Motor Manufacturing in San Antonio - Gov. Rick Perry accredited the relationship between the company and Texas leaders for creating jobs and strengthening the local economy.

Toyota has already invested $1.4 billion in the San Antonio plant since it was established in 2003. The plant currently employs more than 2,800 local workers, about 1,000 of which were hired because of the new Tacoma.

"For almost four years now, pickup trucks have been rolling off the Toyota assembly line here in San Antonio, creating jobs for Texans and bolstering the local economy," Perry said. "The partnership between Texas and Toyota has been extremely valuable, and I am confident it will continue to yield great benefits for us all in the years to come."

Toyota's continued presence in San Antonio is great for the area's manufacturing industry, which was among the hardest-hit by the economic recession, but has started to slowly recover as of late.

During June, the San Antonio-New Braunfels area's manufacturing industry employed 41,700 workers, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Although this is a 3 percent decrease from last year, it's an increase from 41,600 jobs during May 2010.
