Toyota is officially moving it's Headquarters to Plano


It's official, Toyota is relocating its US operations to Plano, TX.  The Japanese automaker, whose headquarters have been in California since 1957, has decided to base nearly all of its operations in the Lone Star State, including much of its engineering, finance and sales and marketing teams.

The move, which will see the establishment of a new headquarters campus in the Dallas suburb will not only affect employees at the company's current Torrance, CA Toyota Motor Sales USA campus, it will also touch the lives of thousands of employees at the company's other operations, including 1,000 workers at Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America in Erlanger, KY and some New York-based staff as well. The Toyota Technical Center in Ann Arbor, MI is not facing relocation, however, and it actually stands to gain responsibilities as Toyota overhauls its US org chart. Toyota says that its reorganization will affect about 4,000 employees in total.

Most Toyota employee are not expected to make the move to the new campus (said to be envisioned in the style of Apple's eco-friendly Silicon Valley campus) until late 2017, but the first employees will begin relocating to Plano this fall, working out of a temporary location until the new headquarters is ready. Groundbreaking for the new facilities is slated to happen in the third quarter of this year, with construction expected to take a further two or more years.
