The second celebration will be for the plant's fourth expansion since the first V8 engine came off the production line in 2003. Governor Bentley, Senators Richard Shelby and Jeff Sessions, Mayor Tommy Battle and Toyota Alabama President Jim Bolte will speak at the event.

 

The Madison County Commission will meet Tuesday morning to continue work on the Remington plant announcement. Commissioners will hold a work session to discuss the county's contribution to bringing Remington to Huntsville. No votes will be taken.
