Toyota Engineers, Techs and Suppliers Are Closer Together Creating New Jobs

In a move to bring engineers, technicians, designers, manufacturing experts and suppliers closer together, Toyota Motor Corporation expanded its Ann Arbor, Michigan R&D Center. Toyota has long invested in continuous improvement of vehicle design and efficiency. They feel that this new collaboration will improve even more by having all these roles working together in closer proximity.Toyota R&D

 Inspired By The “One Toyota” Philosophy A Greener Earth and Environmental Sustainability

The Ann Arbor facility represents a $154 million expansion from the automotive leader. In the heart of the auto industry area in Michigan, this R&D center employs about 1,600 employees. Toyota is recruiting, filling open engineering positions. Future mobility will be one area of focus for the center. Ride-sharing services and self-driving cars are included in the mobility profile.

Seven buildings, up to five stories tall, arranged around a large central plaza that serves as the literal and symbolic heart of all social and business functions – including dining, fitness, and conferencing facilities;

  • Building facades that are predominantly glass, with generous roof overhangs along the southern exposures to cast shade;
  • Local and regional materials and low-water plantings that reflect the native landscapes of North Central Texas;
  • Water features for catchment and storage of water for irrigation; and
  • Parking structures and office buildings that can support solar panels for renewable energy production.
