Experience Center to host special evening tours and events in October

BLUE SPRINGS, Miss. (Oct. 6, 2022) – Furthering Toyota’s commitment to give back its local communities, Toyota Mississippi (TMMMS) is donating 12 trial Corollas to community partners as a launch to this year’s Manufacturing Month and will resume public plant tours in addition to its newly interactive experience center tours.

“These partnership are integral to our plant and our region as a key component of workforce readiness and building a strong pipeline of talent,” said Tiffannie Hedin, Toyota Mississippi corporate communications manager. “We’re so excited to donate a dozen vehicles to such a large group of our key partners and welcome the public through our doors to see just how we manufacture the world’s best-selling car.”

And the festivities won’t stop there. The Blue Springs plant has plans to celebrate all month long. Every Thursday throughout October, guests are invited to experience Toyota’s world-renowned manufacturing with special events and evening tours.

October Manufacturing Month celebrations include:

  • Special evening tours and gift giveaways — every Thursday night in October
  • Team member appreciation day: 10/13
  • Toyota Touch-a-Truck activity: 10/27

Toyota Mississippi is much more than just the home of the Corolla. The facility offers a unique learning experience that allows community partners to explore STEM education and works to develop Mississippi’s next generation of innovators.

The Toyota Mississippi Experience Center hours are:

  • Tuesday to Thursday — 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Tours offered daily — 9 a.m. & 12 p.m.
