FROM THE ARCHIVES 

Toyota this week announced a $1.3-billion investment in its plant in Georgetown, Kentucky. (Watch for full coverage in the May 2017 issue of Site Selection.) We've covered the complex's growth ever since the company first located in the Bluegrass in the late 1980s, including this story from 20 years ago and this roundtable discussion from 15 years ago , when the participants included the governor who first welcomed Toyota to the state.

The 2018 Camry and Camry Hybrid will be produced under the Toyota New Global Architecture system that is part of the $1.3-billion "Reborn" investment by the automaker at its plant in Georgetown, Kentucky.

"Why do I read Site Selection?"  
spacer
testimonial quote During Stion's search process that led to its facility announcement in Hattiesburg, Miss., Site Selection was a useful informational tool which complemented our data-gathering and decision-making efforts. The team has a great deal of experience in identifying siting decisions which have a compelling economic development angle, and objectively highlighting the business context. For an emerging company that has limited internal resources and time, Site Selection is a great aid in funneling the vast amount of information involved in such a multi-faceted process."
