Toyota Mississippi Celebrates 10 Years of Community and One Million Corollas

BYB Poster revised 10.4 01Toyota is making Mississippi mobile.

Beginning with furniture production more than 70 years ago, the northeast corner of the state has a long history of manufacturing, and Toyota’s 2-million-square-foot facility continues the tradition. The state-of-the-art facility, nestled among the pastoral rolling hills in Blue Springs, has rolled almost one million Corolla vehicles off the line.

“The progress our team members have made over the past 10 years has been amazing,” says Vice President of Administration Mike Botkin. “Their commitment to quality and safety, plus the unwavering support we have received from the community, is the foundation of our success.”

Earlier this year, Toyota announced plans to build a nearly $10 million visitor and interactive training center. The facility will offer public tours showcasing how nearly 2,000 Mississippians produce ever-better Corollas vehicles, the world’s best-selling sedan of all time.
