Japanese will build car factories in the US state of Alabama for 1.6 billion US dollars

The authoritative American edition The Wall Street Journal has reported ambitious plans of Japanese automakers. It’s about Toyota Motor and Mazda Motor holdings. The Japanese are going to invest more than one and a half billion US dollars in the construction of auto factories in the town of Huntsville, which is located in Alabama.

The decision in principle to build together a factory was made last summer. However, the accurate location of the future construction has been published just now.
The Japanese will spend about three years to build the necessary infrastructure; the grand launch of the production facilities has been planned for 2021.

It is supposed that the opening of the factories will bring jobs for about four thousand people. Due to such a huge team, more than three hundred thousand cars will be produced per year. The emphasis will be placed on the models of Toyota Corolla and Mazda crossovers.

Alabama is becoming a real car center of the United States. At the moment, the southeast of the USA has become the home to three car factories: the German Daimler, the Japanese Honda and the South Korean Hyundai. There’s also the world’s largest factory in producing engines, which is owned by the auto concern Toyota. At the end of last year, the German automaker Daimler promulgated the decision on attracting additional investments in the amount of one billion US dollars to expand the production capacity.

The published news has had an impact on the stock capitalization of Japanese automakers. Mazda has added 0.7% in price, Toyota – 2.2%. The upward trend will persist for some time and then we should expect the correction of the positions.
