As it begins to ramp up production, MTM aims to hire up to 1,400 additional team members for its workforce, which will ultimately reach around 4,000 once the plant is in full production. Apply for a job.
“Our team members are truly building a new company and a new culture,” said Janette Hostettler, MTM’s vice president of production.
“The reveal of our second SUV, the Mazda CX-50, is a huge milestone for us, and we can’t wait to add more talented people to our team.”
Mazda said the new CX-50 will share key attributes with other models in the automaker’s lineup while also focusing on off-road capabilities.
“This new Mazda vehicle has been developed for North America, particularly to support the active and outdoor lifestyles of customers in this region,” said Jeff Guyton, president and CEO of Mazda North American Operations.
“The CX-50 encourages people to immerse themselves in nature without compromising on the premium design and outstanding on-road performance Mazda is known for.”
Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce, said MTM is already beginning to add heft to the state’s growing auto manufacturing industry, which has the capacity to produce around 1 million vehicles annually.
MTM will add up to 300,000 vehicles per year to that tally.
“The groundbreaking collaboration between Mazda and Toyota will power significant additional growth in Alabama’s auto sector, which is becoming a powerhouse within this global industry,” Secretary Canfield said.
