Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada Inc. plans to add a second shift in March at an assembly plant in Woodstock, Ontario to build more RAV4 sport utility models.
TMMC also builds the Corolla, Matrix, and the Lexus RX350 at the plant. The latest move will add more than 800 jobs when the second shift starts.
Production of the RAV4 began in November 2008 with one-shift. Toyota now says it will now build the majority of RAV4s for the North American market in Ontario.
