Toyota opens new HQ for U.S. in Texas

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BUSINESS & FARM - — The As­so­ci­ated Press

PLANO, Texas — Toyota on Thurs­day of­fi­cially opened its new North Amer­i­can head­quar­ters in Texas.

The $1 bil­lion project in­cludes a new cam­pus in Plano, out­side Dal­las. The Ja­panese au­tomaker plans to move thou­sands of em­ploy­ees from Cal­i­for­nia and Ken­tucky and says it will even­tu­ally em­ploy up to 4,000 people at the Plano site — in­clud­ing about 1,000 new lo­cal hires.

Texas of­fi­cials at­tended events Thurs­day to mark the move, which is part of the com­pany’s plan to bring sales, mar­ket­ing, fi­nan­cial and other ser­vices to­gether in one lo­ca­tion.

Con­struc­tion of the 100-acre head­quar­ters in Plano is not yet com­plete, but em­ploy­ees have been mov­ing in since late spring. More are ex­pected to ar­rive in phases through De­cem­ber.
