Toyota Motor North America Unveils New North American Headquarters In Plano, Texas
“Our new state-of-the-art North American headquarters is designed to stimulate ever better ways to serve our team members, customers, and community,” said Toyota Motor North America CEO Jim Lentz. “As we get closer to completion, we look to recruit people who want to challenge what’s possible at Toyota and within the auto industry.”
“We will be hiring more than 1,000 new team members across numerous functions, and our hope is that they will help us in Toyota’s mission to address mobility challenges for everyone, now and in the future.”
“Bringing our team members together at this striking and inspiring new campus in Plano will help Toyota become a more cohesive, collaborative and innovative company so we can serve our customers better,” said Jim Lentz, CEO of Toyota’s North America Region. “Our efforts to become One Toyota in North America go hand-in-hand with the goals of the Ever-Better Expedition, which embodies our passion for continuous improvement and sharing ideas so that we can deliver products that exceed our customers’ expectations.”
The new campus includes seven buildings, up to five stories tall, arranged around a large central plaza that serves as the literal and symbolic heart of all social and business functions, including dining, fitness, and conferencing facilities.
“Our work with some of the best designers, builders, architects – along with important input from our own team members – has inspired our thinking around how our new facilities can support and enhance the One Toyota Experience,” said Lentz. “We also want to ensure our new headquarters supports Toyota’s commitment to the environment through sustainable, environmentally sensitive and state-of-the-art design, materials, features and efficiencies.”
Toyota intends to pursue LEED Platinum certification for the campus, the highest level of certification possible by the U.S. Green Building Council. Toyota expects the new campus to open in mid-2017.
