Toyota has been part of the cultural fabric of America for six decades, and today we operate 10 plants and directly employ more than 37,000 people in the U.S. Our Georgetown, Kentucky plant alone is home to about 8,000 full-time team members.
Toyota Kentucky also has more than 350 parts and commodities supplier locations in the U.S. and over 100 here in Kentucky. Suppliers range from raw materials to sunroofs to seats, which are made in Georgetown, just a few miles from our plant.
Around 8,000 skilled Kentuckians are hard at work engineering, stamping, painting, assembling and inspecting brand new Toyotas every day. Team members from all backgrounds are at the heart of everything we do.
“I got an opportunity in middle school to come on a tour. It’s really neat to be a mechanical engineer here now, and to be able to see people riding through on the tours and hopefully be able to inspire someone to come work here at Toyota.”
-Ukari Figgs, Team Member
