Rick Schott has arranged for a educational trip to Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada in Cambridge which is sure to be very exciting and most interesting.  The details of the trip are provided below and space is limited to 48 members so act fast by contacting Rick Schott to ensure a spot on the tour.

  • This will be a car pool event so we will need 12 drivers. There is no cost for the tour, only gas money for the drivers. Once we have names of those planning to attend, Rick will organize the car pooling.

 

  • Specifics regarding cost for the lunch at the Crowsfoot Smokehouse in Conestogo (located at 1872 Sawmill Rd, Conestogoto) to be finalized soon.

Toyota maintains a safe and secure environment. Before you come on the tour, here are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Valid ID will be required for each attendee scheduled for the tour. Photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, will be required for each adult.

  • You must arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled tour time to check in with security. If you are late, you may risk missing your tour.

  • They encourage picture taking in the Experience Centre. However, cameras are strictly prohibited on the tram tours. Please leave bags, backpacks and purses in your vehicles. All other personal items will be locked up during the tour.

  • Weapons, or anything that can be perceived as a weapon, are not allowed on TMMC property. No pocket knives

 

  • Each tour starts at the Experience Centre, accessed through Gate 2 at TMMC in Cambridge. Guests will enjoy time in the showroom, which features interactive exhibits, then watch a short welcome video, and take a motorized tram tour through our Cambridge Plant. The tour ends with a brief Q&A. In total, each visit is approximately 90 minutes.

Some interesting facts about the Toyota Plant in Cambridge.

  • In 1997, TMMC North opened for business in Cambridge, Ontario. The North Plant was TMMC’s first plant expansion and was where the award-winning Corolla was produced for over 20 years.

  • In 2019, TMMC North joined TMMC West, becoming the second TMMC plant to build the adventure-inspired Toyota RAV4. During the retooling process, the plant was switched over to Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), and these new manufacturing processes and technology will take the plant far into the future.

  • TMMC first broke ground in 1986. Since the late 80s, Canadian hands have been making Canada’s favourite vehicles. The first vehicle rolled off the line in November 1988, and TMMC built just 153 vehicles that year. Now, TMMC has the ability to produce over half a million vehicles every year. This makes TMMC one of Toyota’s top producing global manufacturing facilities.
