It all began with an idea born out of respect for American ingenuity and the abilities of the U.S. workforce. In 1985, Toyota - the strongest of Japan's automakers - decided to unite its manufacturing know-how with America's strengths to produce a car made in America by Americans.

Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky (TMMK), in Georgetown, Ky., is now Toyota's largest production facility outside of Japan. This $5 billion automotive complex embodies the winning spirit and innovative thinking that creates Toyota Avalon, Camry/Camry Hybrid and Camry Solara coupe and convertible.

This technically advanced 7.92 million-square-foot manufacturing complex has infused new life into the commonwealth of Kentucky by creating over 20,000 jobs, including those at TMMK and throughout our growing community of suppliers. The result has been success and growth beyond our most ambitious expectations.
