TROY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Governor Jay Nixon stopped off in Troy, Missouri to talk jobs Wednesday.

Highlighting the continued growth and impact of the auto industry in Missouri, the governor toured Toyota Bodine's enhanced aluminum plant, which has hired nearly 110 workers over the past eight months.

"Toyota Bodine's expansion here in Troy is a prime example of the strength and statewide impact of Missouri's growing auto industry," he said.

The governor also touted state programs that give high school students tech training while they are still in school, something he says is part of the success of the expansion at the plant.
