Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama celebrates fifteen years of production

Toyota's is celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of its Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama facility, which to date has produced more than 4.5m engines.

The plant is Toyota's only facility that produces 4-cylinder, V6 and V8 engines under one roof, over more than 1,000,000ft² of production space. With a total investment of US$864m, the plant has grown to employ about 1,350 team members.

Toyota Alabama has expanded four times and produces six times as many engines since starting production. “Seeing the plant develop over the past 15 years has been amazing,” said Toyota Alabama president Jim Bolte. “Our team members’ outstanding commitment to quality and safety, plus the great support we have received from community partners and local officials has been the driving force behind our success.”

Over its 15-year history, the plant has incorporated innovative ways to reduce waste and improve energy efficiency, earning awards from both the US Environmental Protection Agency and Toyota North America. The facility began as a zero landfill plant and is now a pilot site for several new "green" projects.

“Our goal is to improve environmental performance, implement innovative technologies and develop community partnerships,” said Jeneen Horton, Toyota Alabama environmental manager. “Through team member engagement, we continuously look for ways to improve operational efficiencies while minimizing our environmental footprint.”
