Toyota thrice celebrates American milestones
Good things are coming in 'threes' for Toyota lately. Autoblog just hipped readers to the pending third birthday of its triumvirate of Scion offerings earlier today.
What's more, three of Toyota's American plants are reaching some milestones of their own this year. The plants include:
- Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky (TMMK), celebrating its 20th year as the company's first U.S. plant. It currently manufactures the Avalon and Camry/Solara.
- Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana (TMMI), which builds the Sequoia, Sienna, and Tundra, celebrates its 10th year.
- Toyota Motor Manufacturing, West Virginia (TMMWV) is celebrating its 10th year as well. The plant provides engines and vehicles for a variety of Toyota and Lexus vehicles.
Plant employees and management will be joined by officials from their hometowns (Georgetown, Princeton, and Buffalo, respectively) to commemorate the occasions. Toyota Motor Corp. currently employs over 38,000 workers in the U.S./Canada, and has created nearly 400,000 jobs in the U.S. according to the Center for Automotive Research.
