DNUS is the first on-site partner announced for Mazda Toyota Manufacturing U.S.A. (MTMUS), a $1.6 billion joint-venture assembly plant being built on a 2,500-acre site in the Limestone County portion of Huntsville.

Construction on the DNUS facility is expected to begin this summer. Once the plant begins operations to coincide with the start of MTMUS vehicle production in 2021, DNUS’s Alabama workforce will produce large resin parts such as bumpers and instrument panels.

DNUS’s project begins just months after MTMUS launched construction on its Alabama facility, which will employ up to 4,000 workers at full production. In 2021, MTMUS will produce up to 300,000 vehicles annually, split evenly between Mazda and Toyota.
