Toyota to expand production at W.Va. plant

Carmaker Toyota is planning a $64 million investment in its Buffalo, W.V., plant to expand production of six-speed automatic transmissions.

Toyota representatives and state and federal officials announced the investment Friday.

U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller says the expansion will create 40 jobs.

Toyota's 2-million-square-foot Buffalo site currently employs 1,100 people, and produces parts for several Toyota and Lexus brand vehicles.
