F4SS Spring Connect 2020
Tour of Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas
F4SS Spring Connect 2020 attendees will be treated to a tour of Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas. Visit the state-of-the-art home of Toyota’s award-winning Tundra and Tacoma pickup trucks. See why the plant received the 2008 J.D. Power and Associates Silver award for Assembly Plant Quality in North and South America. This is a first-of-its-kind honor for a Toyota plant in its first year of production operation.
The tour of the 2.2 million-square-foot facility will include everything from the Body Weld Shop, where computer-controlled robots are used to weld steel. Next, you will move into the Plastics Shop. This is where critical components, including the vehicle bumpers and instrument panels, are made. Following, you will see overhead conveyors transport the trucks from Paint to Assembly, where the trucks begin to take shape. Throughout the tour, your guide will point out the foundations of the world-renowned Toyota Productions System, as well as give you insight to the line side processes of the Toyota Manufacturing of Texas team members.
