PRINCETON, Ind. (AP) — Toyota says it plans to add 180 full-time production jobs to its southwestern Indiana factory over the next five months.
Toyota officials say the first 60 of those workers will come next month from among employees of its temporary staffing company Aerotek.
The Princeton Daily Clarion reports Aerotek will have a job fair Sept. 27 for those interested in working at factory the near Princeton, about 25 miles north of Evansville.
Toyota spokeswoman Kelly Dillon tells the Evansville Courier & Press the hiring comes because of strong sales for the Highlander and Sequoia SUVs and Sienna minivans from the 4,700-worker factory.
Toyota announced last month it would spend $100 million to boost Highlander production at the Princeton factory, with plans to add 300 workers in the next couple of years.
