Toyota Gets New North American Headquarters

Toyota Motor North America, Inc. has a new North American headquarters. The car company celebrated the official opening of its new building with a gala in Plano, Texas, where the new digs are located. According to a press release, it was attended by hundreds of partners, dignitaries and community leaders.

CEO of Toyota in North America, Jim Lentz, said he hopes the new campus will inspire greater collaboration, faster decision making, and innovation.

The opening of the new spot goes hand in hand with Toyota's plan to create more unified operations in the U.S. They plan to do this by bringing a few components together. These elements consist of sales, marketing, quality engineering, financial services and corporate functions.

Toyota also says it will have jobs for up to 4,000 team members in Plano. In addition to employees who wish to relocate, Toyota will also hire more than 1,000 new team members from the area. Toyota has already staffed more than 75 percent of its open positions.
