Toyota Manufacturing Plant Celebrates Milestone By Giving Back

With such a strong workforce, it shouldn't come as any shock that Toyota is now celebrating 15 years of solid production at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, West Virginia, Inc. (TMMWV). The Japanese automaker opened the plant's doors in 1996, and since then they've quadrupled the plant's size, growing its workforce from roughly 250 employees to over 1,000 today.

More impressive, however, than the sheer volume and dedication of the plant's workforces, which has produced nearly 8.6-million transmissions, is how generous they've proven themselves to be in celebrating their latest production milestone. More specifically, the employees at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, West Virginia, Inc. have teamed up to give back to the community in a big way.

Employees began collecting donations just before the plant's celebration for a then unknown cause. In total, the contributions slightly exceeded $100,000 and they were split between several deserving non-profits, including the Multifest Cultural Festival, $22,000; Marshall University, $32,000; City of Buffalo, $8,000; Buffalo Fire Department, $15,000; Eleanor Fire Department, $15,000; and the Putnam County Career & Technical Center, $10,000.

"Toyota supports the communities where it does business, not only monetarily, but, also, through volunteer efforts by our team members," says Mike Lutz, General Manager, TMMWV. "Each year, our team members give over 10,000 hours of their time toward worthy causes in this area."1

Of course, it's this dedication and attention to detail that ensures every model in our new Toyota inventory is as solid as can be. If you'd like to learn more about of the vehicles we carry here at Smart Toyota of Quad Cities, then be sure to contact us online or by phone at 563-391-4106.
