Toyota to Increase Output Capacity at Mexico Truck Plant by 41%

As Toyota Motor Corp. ponders its first full assembly plant in Mexico, it plans to boost capacity at its existing factory there more than 40 percent to feed demand for trucks.

Toyota will increase capacity at its Tacoma pickup plant in Baja California 41 percent to 89,000 vehicles next April.

The upgrade, which will add 300 jobs, follows an 11 percent capacity increase just this year that raised output to 63,000.

The world’s biggest automaker will eke the additional vehicles by adding a third shift to the plant, which is a knock-down facility handling only body . . .
