Crittenden County May Lose Out on Toyota Plant to Texas...Again

MAY 24, 2006 - Posted at 10:06 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A newspaper report says Toyota has selected Texas again as the site for a new auto assembly plant.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette says in an article published today that Yomiuri Shimbun, the largest circulation newspaper in Japan, had reported on Monday that Toyota had decided to put its newest plant in Texas.  According to the Democrat-Gazette, the Japanese newspaper attributed its information to an unnamed senior Toyota executive.

Arkansas has sought to get Toyota to consider a site near Marion in Crittenden County.  The company considered that site in 2002 before deciding to put a new plant in San Antonio.

Arkansas Governor Huckabee says he believes no decision had yet been made by Toyota on the site for a new plant.
