Cambridge, Ontario – Toyota has built its four millionth vehicle in Canada, with the production of a 2010 Corolla produced at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada (TMMC) assembly plant in Cambridge, Ontario.
“The consistent quality produced by Canadian team members has supported this major contribution to our economy,” said TMMC chairman Ray Tanguay. “This is another proud milestone for our company and for Canada. We are very grateful to our customers for their ongoing support.”
It took eleven years from the initial start of production in 1988 to build the first three million cars at TMMC; by comparison, the three millionth vehicle was built just three years ago. The company has the potential to build 500,000 vehicles annually.
The TMMC Cambridge South plant was recently a recipient of the J.D. Power Gold Plant Quality award, ranked by customers as the best manufacturing plant out of 68 in North and South America, and globally, the number-two plant out of 137 facilities.
