About Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd

Hero image for Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd

Toyota's decision to establish a manufacturing operation in Europe was announced in 1989 and Toyota Manufacturing UK was established in December that year.

There are two manufacturing plants in the UK representing a total investment in excess of £2.75 billion and currently approximately 3,300 members (including Agency) are employed. The vehicle manufacturing plant is located at Burnaston in Derbyshire, the engine manufacturing plant is located at Deeside in North Wales. The processes at Burnaston include pressing, welding, painting, plastic mouldings and assembly, whilst at Deeside they include machining, assembly and aluminium casting.

The first car, a Carina E, drove off the Burnaston production line on 16 December 1992. This was subsequently replaced by the Avensis in 1997 which saw three generations throughout its history. However, after 20 years, we bid a fond farewell to the 1,936,572nd Toyota Avensis – the final one to drive off our production line in July 2018.

In its place came a new generation of car, the Corolla. Toyota is the leading company for hybrid vehicle development, and the new Corolla. Its Touring Sports variant is the future of TMUK – the first model to introduce Toyota’s dual hybrid strategy.

Culture and values

Toyota Manufacturing UK is committed to the principle of Equal Opportunities by providing fair and equitable treatment to all Members and applicants. Only with the commitment and support of all employees can we achieve an environment of mutual trust and respect. Our Equal Opportunities Policy has been developed in conjunction with TMAB – Toyota Members' Advisory Board. Its aim is to ensure providing equal opportunities to all applicants and Members, regardless of their gender, age, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, race, religion or belief, ethnic or national origin, or nationality.

At Toyota we recognise that highly skilled and motivated employees who are treated with trust and respect show great commitment to the fulfillment of the company's goals. At our heart is the Japanese concept of kaizen - a belief that no process can ever be declared perfect; that there's always a better way. You can see it in our world-leading processes, our innovative products and, of course, in the way we develop our people.

Toyota's 'people' philosophy provides each and every employee with growth opportunity and fulfilling, stable employment. Toyota believes that this can be best achieved by securing long-term prosperity for the company. Both short and long term success depends on the continuous commitment of employees. Training, multi-skilling, job rotation and good communication play a part, as well as a competitive salary and benefits package and regular performance appraisal.
