Sen. Rockefeller Will Recognize WV Business Wednesday
One company's success has been noticed by a federal lawmaker. Sen. Jay Rockefeller is returning to the area this week to celebrate what he considers one of the signature achievements of his nearly 50-year career, the Toyota manufacturing plant in Buffalo. Rockefeller will join Toyota Motor Corp. chairman Shoichiro Toyoda and others in celebrating production of the 10 millionth unit on Wednesday afternoon. In March, Toyota announced a $45 million expansion of the Buffalo plant that will create 80 jobs, to bring the plant's total to about 1200 employees.
