West Virginia has been and will continue to be an important part of Toyota's efforts to localise production in North America."

To commemorate this celebration, TMMWV donated $32,500 to 13 area schools in Putnam, Mason, Cabell and Kanawha counties to enhance TMMWV's and Bridgemont Community and Technical College's Advanced Manufacturing Technician program (AMT), created last summer. The AMT program combines a cutting-edge curriculum, paid work experience, and instruction in highly sought after business principles and best practices from a world-class manufacturer that results in a two-year associate's degree from Bridgemont.
