Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd

Toyota's decision to establish a manufacturing operation in the UK was announced in 1989 and Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd was established in December that year.

There are two manufacturing plants in the UK representing a total investment of £2.75 billion and approximately 3,000 members (including agency) are employed. The vehicle manufacturing plant is located at Burnaston in Derbyshire and the engine manufacturing plant is located at Deeside in North Wales. The first car, a Carina E, drove off the Burnaston production line in 1992.

Although we are proud of our record as a pioneer of environmental technologies, we believe there is still much more we can achieve. We have drawn up a series of major challenges that we will be working to achieve by 2050, going beyond zero environmental impact to deliver positive environmental benefits.

The breadth of our mission is to make life better by using new technologies, new ways of working and new thinking to reduce emissions, increase recycling, protect natural resources and harness cleaner, renewable energy sources, while helping people around the world live and work in harmony with nature.
