Toyota Material Handling is moving it’s North American headquarters to Columbus. The operations will be housed in an existing Columbus plant.
The move is creating 50 jobs and represents an investment of just more than $4.6 million.
Governor Mike Pence was on hand for today’s ribbon cutting he says the move is a testimony to the strength of ties between Japan and Indiana.
Toyota Materials Handling President Jeff Rufener says the move to Indiana from California is part of a plan to align marketing, sales and manufacturing teams in a centralized location closer to key markets and customers.
