Texas must be doing something to attract companies. Toyota also announced a move this week - from Torrance, California, to Plano, Texas.

It should be noted that Caterpillar still has operations in Anderson County and in Newberry. They will not be affected by this move.

It's not a relocation, just consolidating plants.

It's actually both according to the news article from yesterday. Part of the production will go to an existing plant in Texas while the other part of production will go to an existing plant in Georgia.
