Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd marks 25th anniversary at Burnaston

A major D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership area employer, Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd, has marked 25 years in business at its vehicle manufacturing plant in Burnaston, Derbyshire.

A celebration event held at the plant today (Friday December 15) was attended by senior Toyota representatives, from both Japan and the UK, and business figures from the D2N2 LEP area and beyond.

D2N2 LEP Chief Executive David Ralph and Chair Peter Richardson were both invited to the milestone event. D2N2 is the private sector-led partnership of business, local authorities, skills and training providers, and community and voluntary services which promotes economic and jobs growth across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Around 3,000 (including agency) staff in total are employed by Toyota at its Burnaston plant and at the engine manufacturing plant, based at Deeside in North Wales. 

The first car off the Burnaston production line, in December 1992, was the Carina E model. Other models produced at the plant have included the Avensis, Corolla, Auris and Auris Hybrid.

Through its Strategic Economic Plan, D2N2 promotes eight key sectors; ones where the area has or could develop a competitive commercial advantage. One of these sectors is ‘transport equipment manufacturing’; reflecting the importance of major employers within the area such as Toyota and Rolls-Royce, both in terms of their direct employment and for those employed in the global names’ supply chain companies.

David Ralph, D2N2 Chief Executive, said: “Toyota is a major player in our area’s economy. I was delighted to be invited there to see it mark its 25th anniversary, at Burnaston.”
