It says Ivey will be joined by other state, local and company officials. The site for the new plant in Huntsville sits just 14 miles from Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Alabama, which produces four-cylinder, V-6 and V-8 engines for several Toyota models.
Most of Toyota's US plants are in the South, and all are non-union.
For Toyota, this joint-venture plant will be its 11th USA manufacturing facility and represents its continued commitment in the US, in addition to the $10 billion dollar investment over the next 5 years that was announced in January 2017.
The plant will be located near Huntsville. It will be able to build 300,000 vehicles per year and will produce the Toyota Corolla compact auto for North America and a new small SUV from Mazda, the companies have said.
A decision by Toyota and Mazda to build a joint factory in Alabama instead of rumored rival North Carolina is another miss for one of the few Southeast states never to land a modern carmaker.
The person did not want to identify himself to the Associated Press because the decision hasn't been made public.
To lure the plant, the state offered an incentive package of $370 million in tax abatements and investment rebates, Alabama Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield said. It will be Toyota's eighth such facility in North America and the second for Mazda.
"With this announcement, our world changes overnight", Battle said.
Alabama will be the site of a new $1.6 billion Toyota Motor Corp and Mazda Motor Corp auto plant, a victory for President Donald Trump who had prodded manufacturers to build new US facilities and threatened tariffs on foreign production, sources said on Tuesday. The area has many parts factories that provide products to the automakers. "It vaults Alabama to the top as an industry leader in producing the next generation of cars that will power our nation".
The new plant will be home to Mazda's new crossover SUVs and Toyota's Corolla compact sedans, which were originally going to be built in Mexico, drawing the ire of Trump.
Alabama is the fifth largest producer of cars and light trucks nationally and stands at the center of the growing Southeastern automotive region with a strong automotive presence including Toyota's engine plant in Huntsville. The plan for the Alabama plant appears to reflect Trump's calls for more investment and jobs in the United States.
"We expect the new facility in Huntsville to act as a magnet for substantial new industry investment and job-creation that lifts communities and families across the state", he added.
