NC a finalist for Toyota-Mazda auto plant

Jim Crawford, chairman of the Chatham County Commission, on Tuesday night said that the sites near Siler City and Moncure are no longer in the running for the plant, but they have submitted a bid for the new Amazon headquarters. They said it would create up to 4,000 jobs and entail an investment of $1.6 billion.

Both Toyota and Mazda declined to comment to Bloomberg about the claims.

Toyota and Mazda are pressing for an incentive package valued at $1 billion or more for the factory that is such a hotly contested prize.

North Carolina has four "megasites" that have been built to accommodate large industry such as automotive or airplane. Mazda, which imports all the models it sells in the USA, plans to produce crossovers alongside Toyota Corolla compact cars at the new plant.

Expected to begin production in 2021, the plant likely pleased President Donald Trump, who pressured Japanese makers during his recent Asian tour to build more vehicles in the U.S. He's often criticized Toyota for its plans to expand its Mexican operations, which it cancelled recently. Mazda and Toyota plan to announce their final choice by early next year, Akira Marumoto, Mazda's executive vice president, told reporters in Tokyo earlier this month.
