Toyota is moving to Plano

Globe Limo welcomes Toyota, one за the world leading automobile companies, to Texas. We believe the move will be beneficial for both Toyota and Plano, TX.

Toyota is the world’s top automaker with 14 manufacturing plants in North America employing over 40,000 people (more than 30,000 in the USA).

The headquarters relocation – now officially confirmed – will bring about 4,000 jobs from California, Kentucky and New York.

Toyota’s CEO Jim Lentz said: “With our major North American business affiliates and leaders together in one location for the first time, we will be better equipped to speed decision making, share best practices, and leverage the combined strength of our employees. This, in turn, will strengthen our ability to put customers first and to continue making great products that exceed their expectations.”

Most Toyota employee are not expected to make the move to the new campus (said to be envisioned in the style of Apple’s eco-friendly Silicon Valley campus) until late 2017, but the first employees will begin relocating to Plano this fall, working out of a temporary location until the new headquarters is ready. Groundbreaking for the new facilities is slated to happen in the third quarter of this year, with construction expected to take a further two or more years.

Long before Toyota opens it new North American headquarters in Plano, the company will have a significant impact on the city’s bottom line. During the first two phases of relocation, restaurants, health-care providers, retailers, architects, engineers, IT services, and advertisers will be among those most impacted. As many as 1,400 jobs in those industries will be created as a result of Toyota’s move to North Texas.

This relocation will be the largest out-of-state move to Plano since the 1980s.
