TMMC North: Toyota Cambridge Plant North
|Facilities||Cambridge - 3 million sq ft
Woodstock - 1.8 million sq ft
That’s the number of total quality checks that each vehicle produced in the North Plant will undergo as it makes its way along various assembly lines. Some checks—such as chisel checks and fit & finish inspections—are performed by Team Members. Others are carried out by state-of-the art lasers that test for dimensional accuracy. These checks are a critical aspect of Toyota’s philosophy of “built in quality” at each step of production.
Located in Cambridge, Ontario, North is where we build the Corolla, the best selling vehicle of all time. Here’s a brief overview of Toyota Cambridge Plant North—by the numbers.
That’s the year North Assembly opened for business and Corolla production moved from the original (now “South”) plant. Since TMMC started production, we’ve manufactured just under 3,700,000 Corollas.
That’s the number of Corolla generations we’ve manufactured since 1988. The current Corolla model now perfectly holds an extra large Canadian “double-double” coffee in the cup holder and has floor pedals that fit North American shoes (size 10.5 men’s winter boots to be exact), thanks to a Canadian TMMC engineer who spent a year in Japan helping to evolve the vehicle design.
That’s the number of Corolla vehicles produced daily on the lines of Toyota Cambridge Plant North. It’s a complex operation made possible by highly trained Team Members and the just-in-time timing of the Toyota Production System.
