Toyota gets behind local industry

Toyota Australia recently announced that it will pour $123 million into its local manufacturing operations as it prepares to build what it says is a major facelift vehicle from 2015.

This is likely to be the new Camry/Aurion seeing as this is the only car Toyota produces in Australia. Toyota’s plan is to also grow its supplier development program over the next five years. The Federal Government is supporting Toyota’s investment with a $23.6 million contribution and has promised a further $5 million towards the supplier development program.
