Toyota Motor Corp. brings top engineers under one roof in Georgetown, Kentucky

Toyota Motor Corp. brings top engineers under one roof in Georgetown, Kentucky”

Toyota Motor Engineering North America announced today at its Production Engineering and Manufacturing Center grand opening that it will partner with the University of Kentucky to develop a unique production engineering program, funded with a five-year, $1.25 million gift from Toyota. It will serve as the home base for 600 Toyota engineers. Once tested, those advancements may be applied to the company's plants to improve processes or solve a challenge.

"Toyota's new environmentally-conscious, state-of-the-art PEMC building showcases their continued commitment to the commonwealth".

State and local government leaders, education officials, and business representatives all gathered in Scott County Monday for a formal announcement at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky. The building includes solar panels, rainwater collection systems, energy-efficient construction and a geothermal HVAC system. "We are grateful to have Toyota in Kentucky and look forward to a bright future together". "UK will attract future engineering students by providing a unique program sponsored by the world's largest automaker".

Toyota's new $80 million Production Engineering and Manufacturing Center is a big step toward a longtime Kentucky goal: Don't just be a place where people make things; be a place where people also create things they make.

Two of Kentucky's economic engines are collaborating to graduate more engineers with automotive production training already under their belt, addressing a significant industry need in the nation's third-largest auto-producing state. The program will include a two-semester senior design project. "Toyota is committed to investing in initiatives that improve the skill levels of the job force, focusing on the next generation, because the success of Toyota, the Commonwealth, and our country depend on them". It brings top engineers under one roof to focus on design, production, new technology and manufacturing for Toyota's facilities across the continent.

Since coming to Georgetown in 1987 to build its initial assembly plant, Toyota says it has invested more than $7 billion in facilities there that employ 8,600 people.
