LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Subaru of Indina (SIA) rolled out its expansion plan through a 158 million dollar project Thursday afternoon.

SIA plan on adding a service parts facility to make entities like hoods and other products on site. The project also includes a new transmission assembly shop that will be attached to the existing building in Lafayette.

This expansion goes in line with Subaru's improving output since the plant came to Lafayette in 1989. They've expanded their yearly output in terms of cars by around 350-thousand in the last 40 years.

"It provides not just hope, it provides real opportunity," said Governor Eric Holcomb. "350, you know often times we call them jobs, these are careers."

The project is expected to be completed for the beginning of 2022.
