PRINCETON, Ind (21Alive) -- More Jobs are coming to Indiana, thanks to Toyota.

The automaker announced yesterday that they would be increasing the production of their Highlander SUV. The announcement was made at the Princeton automotive plant where the company celebrated the start of production on the 2014 Highlander model.

Indiana's Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann said "With Toyota’s launch of production for the new Highlander right here in the Hoosier State, we are witnessing an economy driving forward. From our world-class workforce to our low cost of doing business, Indiana proves daily that it is a state that works for automotive manufacturing.”

The increase in production at the Princeton plant is expected to create over 600 jobs for the Hoosier state.
