TOYOTA - Bodine Aluminum Tennessee
Toyota broke ground in Jackson, Tennessee, in November 2003 to cast aluminum cylinder blocks and production started two years later with the first V6 engine shipped to Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky. Toyota's Bodine Aluminum currently produces aluminum cylinder blocks and automatic transmission housings for all North America-produced Toyota vehicles. Toyota Bodine actively participates in the Jackson community supporting the Jackson Symphony, the Exchange Club-Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse, RIFA food bank and soup kitchen, West Middle School, Boys and Girls Club of West Tennessee, the Jackson Area Chapter of the American Red Cross and Jackson Parks and Recreation. In 2011, Toyota's Bodine Aluminum was recognized by the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce as the “Large Industry of the Year” for its extra effort to achieve excellence in high standards, professional accomplishments and community contributions.

Tennessee is a very business-friendly state. It's elected officials have always been interested in hearing what's important for a company like Toyota to be successful. Even before Toyota Bodine located in West Tennessee, dozens of Toyota suppliers found the state to be a great place to do business. The state continues to look for ways to make its business climate even more positive to attract and expand industry. Jackson has an outstanding business community, dedicated workforce and is a great place to call home. The spirit of cooperation and support from local and state leadership is impressive.
