Toyota in the U.S.: Thinking hard deep in the heart of Texas.
About 20 minutes drive from downtown San Antonio, Texas, the rolling green of the plains suddenly gives way to Toyota's new Texas plant. Toyota bought the oldest ranch in the state to build the 810-hectare plant. It's big enough to hold 173 Tokyo Domes. The complex is also home to 21 parts suppliers. From the distribution viewpoint, the site is served not only by road, but also by rail and sends out Tundra full-size pickup trucks across the United States.
