Toyota continues to grow its investment in Michigan

Toyota will move forward with the planning of its new facility on the York Township, Michigan, campus of the Toyota Technical Center to accommodate approximately 250 direct procurement positions currently based in Kentucky following approval of state and local
incentives announced by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and York Township.

"We greatly appreciate the support and encouragement of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Ann Arbor SPARK, York Township and elected officials across the state as we continue to expand our presence in Michigan," said Osamu Nagata, President & CEO of Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing North America, Inc. "The Toyota Technical Center has been the driving force behind our engineering and R&D activities in North America for more than 35 years, so I am pleased and proud that we will continue to grow these operations. We look forward to strengthening our ties with Michigan even further and making continued investments that will help drive the success of Toyota, our supplier partners and the state for many years to come."

"Toyota's expansion sends a message around the world that Michigan's singular leadership in auto manufacturing and research and development means real opportunities for global companies," said Michigan Governor Rick Snyder. "Toyota's decision demonstrates how Michigan's highly competitive business climate and premier manufacturing workforce can help automakers and other industries grow."
