Toyota Motor Co. is spending $37 million to expand its Tacoma pickup plant in Tijuana, Mexico.
The expansion will boost the annual capacity of the plant, called Toyota Motor Manufacturing de Baja California, by 20,000 units to 50,000. It also will be able to make 200,000 beds a year for Tacoma trucks. The expansion is to be complete by 2007.
The plant, which opened in 2004, builds Tacomas for the United States and Mexico. It has about 800 workers.
A press release said Toyota is studying how many employees need to be added.
