PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) -- Applicants hoping to land one of 80 jobs at the Hino Motors plant have until Tuesday to apply.

The company will stop accepting applications then for its planned truck assembly plant in Wood County.

So far, more than two-thousand people have submitted applications with the Workforce West Virginia office in Parkersburg.

Hino announced last month that it planned to open an assembly plant in Williamstown. The plant would be Hino's second assembly plant in the United States.

The plant is expected to assemble 25-hundred trucks a year when it opens in November.

The Japanese truck manufacturer is owned by Toyota Group and sold about 66-hundred trucks in the US last year.
