On Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017, Toyota said it will add 400 jobs. Toyota on Tuesday announced plans to invest $600 million and add 400 new jobs to its auto plant in Princeton, Ind. The project, which includes retooling as well as new equipment and advanced technology, is scheduled to begin in late 2019. It will enable the southwestern Indiana facility to manufacture an additional 40,000 additional Highlander SUVs per year. The Princeton facility churned out a record 400,000 Highlanders last year, company officials said.

On Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017, Toyota said it will add 400 jobs and invest $600 million at the Princeton SUV factory. (Erin McCracken / AP)

“The Highlander has been a great vehicle for our plant and we are excited to deliver even more of them to our loyal customers,” Toyota Indiana president Millie Marshall said in a statement.

Numerous auto parts manufacturers and automakers made investments in U.S. plants in recent months in an effort to bolster production of trucks and SUVs, which have higher profit margins and are selling well amid low gas prices and improved fuel efficiency.

Some vehicle makers are also shifting production of lower-margin small cars into Mexico, which drew repeated criticism from President Donald Trump. The Princeton project is part of $10 billion in planned investments in Toyota’s U.S. plants over the next five years.

Jan 23, 2017 – Kineticdc loses wait time for die casting parts. Kinetic Die Casting Company will ship most production die casting parts in less than 4 weeks. Other die casting companies are trapped in the old way of manufacturing die casting parts and are shipping parts in 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 14 weeks and even more than 16 weeks.

How much is the longer wait time costing their customers? If a product needs to be shipped this month but the die casting parts will not be ready for several weeks, that means lost income for the manufacturing company. Kinetic Die Casting Company solves that wait time problem for our customers.

Many times a new customer will send us a die casting mold from our competitor and we will ship parts in less than two weeks. If you need parts fast, send us your die casting tooling, we will make a special effort to get you your parts in less than two weeks.
