Toyota-owned material handling equipment and robotic automation systems maker Bastian Solutions LLC intends to construct a new, $8 million manufacturing facility in Westfield, IN, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) announced Monday in a press release.

Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb and the mayor of Westfield joined company officials at an event in Westfield on Monday to debut the plan. Bastian was recently acquired by Toyota Advanced Logistics.

The 90,000-sq-ft site will employ 87 workers when it becomes operational in 2020. Production facilities at the site will utilize the Toyota Production System, which lowers the amount of waste generated by the site during manufacturing and helps to ensure quality and efficiency through the various processes, IEDC’s release said.

“Toyota Advanced Logistics and Bastian Solutions are honored to join the Westfield community, and we look forward to building a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that will not only provide jobs but also become a catalyst for the local economy,” Michael Romano, president of Toyota Advanced Logistics, said in a statement.

Bastian Solutions was founded in 1952 and now operates 20 offices and locations in the U.S., Australia, Canada, Brazil, India, Mexico, and Spain.
