Toyota has returned to normal production levels across North America, coming a long way in just six months time. Toyota reached regular production levels sooner than they expected in large part as a chain reaction to the progress being made in Japan. While only 12 Toyota models are built in the U.S., including the Camry, Tacoma, and RAV4, they could not previously be manufactured at optimal rates in North America given supply shortages manufactured in Japan.
"The recovery is a testament to the dedication and commitment of our American team members, suppliers and business partners," says Steve St. Angelo, Executive VP, Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing. "All of us at Toyota greatly appreciate the patience and support of our customers and dealers, and many of whom have made generous donations in support of the relief efforts in Japan."1
Being that the past six months seemed like one big game of catch-up, Toyota is eager to start looking towards the future. However, before Toyota looks too far ahead they need to first work toward replenishing inventory levels at dealerships across North America.
