Boone County Judge-executive Gary Moore will be Tuesday's FOX19 Morning News to discuss Toyota's decision to close its North America engineering and manufacturing headquarters in Erlanger.

The new facility will be in Plano, Texas where the Japanese auto manufacturer will consolidate its three separate North American headquarters for manufacturing, sales, marketing and corporate operations into one campus. The company's North American finance division will also move to Texas.

The company said altogether the moves will affect approximately 4,000 employees.

The move will impact about 1,000 employees at Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America Inc. in Erlanger. Toyota said it will expand its Toyota Technical Center near Ann Arbor, Mich. for the relocation of approximately 250 Erlanger positions.

The Texas campus is expected to be completed in late 2016 or early 2017. Small groups will start moving this summer from Toyota's Erlanger, California and New York facilities.

The company said about 300 production engineering positions based in Erlanger will be relocated to a new facility to be built at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky in Georgetown, Ky. with about 1,000 administrative Erlanger jobs being moved to Plano.
