Toyota in the World
Making the most of the £100,000 that Sakichi Toyoda received for selling the patent rights of his automatic loom, Kiichiro laid the foundations of Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), which was established in 1937. From looms to cars, the Toyota experience has been shaped by extending the boundaries of manufacturing.
Today, Toyota operates 60 manufacturing companies in 27 countries and regions globally, excluding Japan. It markets vehicles in more than 160 countries and regions worldwide, thanks to the support of a 338,000 strong workforce.
