Earlier this year, Toyota’s Burnaston car plant in Derbyshire produced its 4.5millionth vehicle. Toyota has been building cars in Britain since 1992 when the Burnaston factory came on stream as Toyota’s first manufacturing centre in Europe.
The factory produces a car every 89 seconds when operating at full power with all 3,100 workers, manufacturing around 3,000 vehicles a week and on average 150,000 a year.
In September, Tim joined our main board as one of our private sector representatives.
