Toyota Technical Center - York Township, MI.

For the third time in a little more than a year, Toyota has announced an expansion of its Southeast Michigan R&D campuses. The most recent announcement involves an investment of $126 million for the expansion of powertrain operations at its Ann Arbor campus and the consolidation of vehicle development operations at a new facility on its York Township facility. Both vehicle development and powertrain functions will become centralized in Michigan, increasing their scope, responsibility, and decision-making ability while providing improved communication and access to the company’s direct procurement division, the company said in a press release. Approximately 85 jobs will relocate to Michigan from California by the end of 2016 as a part of the move. In late 2013, Toyota announced a $28 million expansion of its Ann Arbor operations and earlier this year announced the addition of 250 direct procurement and supplier engineering development positions currently based in Erlanger, KY.
