U.S. official visiting Toledo Jeep plant

U.S. Transportation Deputy Secretary John Porcari will tour Chrysler Group LLC’s Toledo Assembly complex on Wednesday morning.

Mr. Porcari's visit to Toledo comes a week after President Obama’s State of the Union Address, in which he called for rewarding companies that create jobs in the United States as part of a blueprint for "an America Built to Last," according to a news release.

The automaker last year committed $500 million to its Toledo Assembly complex. That investment, which will go toward updating the line that ultimately will build Jeep's new sport utility vehicle in 2013, will add a second shift to the plant, and lead to more than 1,100 jobs. Chrysler also said it planned to invest $72 million in its Toledo Machining Plant.
