Toyota - 10 Years Texas Proud !!!

10 Years Texas Proud

SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 17, 2013) – Everyone has a lucky number. And for 10 San Antonio organizations, 10 is their new lucky number.

Exactly 10 years to the date after breaking ground, Toyota Texas has donated 10 trucks to thank the community for a decade of support, trust and friendship. Team members, suppliers and guests celebrated the anniversary at the plant.

Designated “10 for 10,” the 10 area non-profits and institutions to receive a Texas-built Tundra or Tacoma include:
° Christian Senior Services Meals on Wheels
° Floresville Independent School District
° Habitat For Humanity of San Antonio
° Northside Independent School District
° San Antonio College, Challenger Center
° San Antonio Fire Department
° San Antonio River Foundation
° Somerset Independent School District
° Southwest Independent School District
° South San Antonio Independent School District

Toyota Texas represents a $2.2 billion investment and assembles Tundra and Tacoma pickup trucks. The plant has an annual capacity to produce 200,000 trucks and directly employs 2,900 workers. Seven of its 21 on-site suppliers are minority joint ventures – six of which are locally owned - and combined with the plant, total employment is nearly 6,000.

“Toyota Texas is committed to deepening our roots in our neighborhood here on the South Side,” said Toyota Texas President Chris Nielsen. “We want to thank San Antonio, its citizens and community partners for their unwavering support during the past decade.”

“Toyota has proven to be a solid partner for the State of Texas and a valued member of the community of San Antonio,” Gov. Rick Perry said. “Since ground was broken a decade ago, Toyota has been instrumental in jumpstarting our economic development efforts, which have been wildly successful at attracting jobs from across the country and around the world. The First Lady and I wish everyone at Toyota continued success over the next 10 years and beyond in Texas.”
