Just got the bulletin on my phone from al.com.

Don't know if it'll be in Huntsville or another location (Gulf Coast).

I am unaware of any other sites in Alabama than the Limestone County site.

North Shelby County, but it looks as if Limestone is the frontrunner.

As a Birminghamster, I'd love to add a third auto plant to the metro area, but it's a great win for Alabama, no matter where it goes.

What are the two existing ones? I didn't know there were any in the Birmingham metro. Mercedes is near Tuscaloosa, but I don't think that's part of the B'ham metro. Can't think of another one.

Another site that had been mentioned was in Baldwin County, but I'm not sure if that was just talk or was real.

Honda, by dint of being in Talladega County, is in the Birmingham-Hoover-Talladega combined CSA. You're right about Mercedes, but if Tuscaloosa gets folded into the region by the Feds, as is expected in 2020, then that would be two.

Nevertheless, Birmingham gets a huge economic boost by hosting tons of suppliers.

Didn't know about the Honda plant. Seems like all you hear about is the Mercedes plant and the Hyundai one south of Montgomery. And yes, the impact of suppliers is a huge thing.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Tuscaloosa as a part of the CSA next time around.

Here's a link to a CNBC article that confirms this plant will be in Huntsville metro.

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/09/toyo...n-alabama.html

This is a big deal. All of the auto parts component factories already in AL will be happy because this will be another big location to sell to that is within easy shipping distance.
