Manchin Congratulates Toyota On 25 Years In West Virginia

Charleston, WV– Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) congratulated Toyota Motor Manufacturing West Virginia on 25 years of producing engines and transmission in Buffalo, West Virginia. In 2005, Senator Manchin travelled to Japan to meet with Dr. Toyoda and company officials about manufacturing in West Virginia.

“Congratulations to Toyota Motor Manufacturing West Virginia on 25 years of production at the Buffalo Plant in West Virginia. For 25 years, Toyota has been a strong partner for the Mountain State, creating thousands of good-paying jobs and investing $1.8 billion in the state. When I served as Governor, I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Toyoda and company officials to reaffirm the commitment between West Virginia and Toyota,” said Senator Manchin. “Not only has the company invested at the Buffalo Plant, they have invested in West Virginians’ lives across the state, including a recent investment at West Virginia University Institute of Technology for a computer science program for students in four counties. Thank you to Toyota for their continued investment and the hardworking West Virginians exceeding expectations at the plant. I look forward to West Virginia’s partnership with Toyota for decades to come.”
