Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana Opens Visitor Center
The Visitors Center offers interactive, multimedia exhibits about the company’s history, the Toyota manufacturing process, the carmaker’s environmental commitment, the Tri-State’s industrial background and Toyota’s Indiana’s social activities.
The Toyota Indiana plant tour offers guests a safety presentation in the Visitors Center’s Moving Forward theater. This is followed by a tram journey through the body welding and vehicle assembly shops. The complete tour takes around 45 minutes.
Eric Heidenreich, Executive Director of the Gibson County Visitors and Tourism Bureau believes that the center will also become a touristic asset for the region.
“We know this beautiful facility will offer visitors to our area an experience that will be both entertaining and educational,” Heidenreich said. “We anticipate that there will be a large number of people who are eager to take part in that experience.”
The Visitors Center is based in the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana Campus. This production site has been active since 1998 and currently employs 4,200 people. The 4 million sq. ft. plant produces the Sequoia SUV, the Sienna minivan and the Highlander SUV.
"We have been successful because of the tremendous support we have enjoyed from the community, our suppliers, our team members and their families,”, Kazumori “Kaz” Oi, Toyota Indiana President said.
