HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Senator Jeff Sessions joined other state and local leaders on Tuesday as Toyota celebrated another expansion.

Toyota celebrated its fourth expansion, as well as the production of its three millionth engine.

Governor Bentley was at the celebration, along with Congressman Mo Brooks, Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle and plenty of other leadership.

"This area of the state is easy to recruit to," said the governor. "This is a great part of the state and we have great workers here. That's what makes the plans great, is our workforce."

The plant opened in Huntsville in 2003. The company said it needs more room to increase production of its V-6 engine line. The expansion is set to bring 125 jobs to the area.
