Toyota said Tuesday it will invest $109 million in its cylinder-head plant in Troy, Missouri.

The money will fund new equipment to build four-cylinder engine heads on three production lines, the company said. The 550,000-square-foot plant, in Lincoln County, currently has the capacity to annually build over 3 million cylinder heads, officials said Tuesday in a press release.
