The Story of Sakichi Toyoda
Sakichi Toyoda, the founder of Toyota Industries Corporation, possessed a strong ambition to contribute to society from his days as a youth. He had devoted his 63-year-long life to invention.
With its strengths in safety, the environment, quality, cost and delivery, Toyota Industries develops and produces the RAV4 and the RAV4 PHEV for Toyota Motor Corporation.
In recognition of Toyota Industries’ comprehensive strengths in vehicle quality, delivery, cost and safety as the highest among all Toyota-affiliated automobile body manufacturers, from Toyota Motor Corporation we have received an award for excellence under the Toyota Quality Control Award program. In the face of the shrinking automobile market in Japan, we are further strengthening our already superior level of safety, the environment, quality, cost and delivery. We also are working to leverage our ability to quickly start up production and a flexible structure in terms of vehicle models and production volume to contribute to production in Japan of TOYOTA vehicles.
