Toyota’s American Journey Travels the Road to Opportunity
For over 60 years Toyota has been growing its manufacturing presence in the U.S. as part of its American journey. That journey spans manufacturing investment, workforce training opportunities, and new vehicles to help our customers go places.
And the company’s footprint in the U.S. continues to grow. In 2017, Toyota pledged to invest $10 billion over five years, which they have increased to $13 billion over the same period. Part of that commitment is an announcement of a nearly $750 million investment across five states. As of April 2019, Toyota has committed approximately $6 billion of the announced $13 billion.
Most recently, Toyota has committed, through the Pledge to America’s Workers, to provide 200,000 workforce training opportunities over the next five years through apprenticeships, work-based learning opportunities, retraining, on the job training, and other educational opportunities.
The company also assists its dealers and suppliers in training through programs such as the Technical Training and Education Network (T-TEN).
Toyota team members are making a positive impact across the country, including the many Women on the Line. At manufacturing facilities in Alabama, West Virginia, Indiana, Tennessee, and more, this journey is a trip with lots to see, and we hope these videos offer you a fresh window into the road more traveled.
