NC a finalist for $1.6 billion Toyota-Mazda plant, report says

Alabama North Carolina only two states left in running for future Toyota Mazda plant report says

The Greensboro News & Record reported a group has set aside almost 1,900 acres along the Guilford and Alamance county lines to help attract a vehicle manufacturer.

Alabama and North Carolina are the only two states left in the running, reports Bloomberg, citing unnamed sources familiar with the negotiations.

Several states were in the running for the massive plant. Representatives of both companies do not comment on the data, however, insiders claim that experts brands abandoned the idea to build a plant in Texas, Tennessee and SC.

The Randolph County Planning Board voted in the affirmative Tuesday night on a rezoning request that would add 370 acres to the 1,500-acre mega-site south of Greensboro.

Crawford said he will be rooting for the Randolph County site to get the plan, because it is only eight miles away from Chatham County. As we previously reported, the factory should produce around 300,000 vehicles a year and create as many as 4,000 new jobs. Mazda will build crossovers at the plant, and Toyota intends to build the Corolla there.

North Carolina is the only state in the Southeast without a major auto manufacturing plant.
