Toyota celebrates 10-millionth vehicle made in Kentucky
From a 1988 Camry to a Camry of today, to enter in the history of the factory. Toyota celebrated the prestigious milestone of 10 million units produced at the plant in Georgetown, Kentucky, putting the “first” Camry that came off the line in 1988 next to the 10-millionth Camry produced today.
During these more than 25 years, Toyota has invested in the site nearly 6 billion dollars and the workforce has more than doubled to 7,000 employees.
If the first Camry will be preserved for historical purposes at the museum of the carmaker, one lucky team member will get the chance to win the 10-millionth vehicle – a white hybrid Camry – via a blind drawing, which will take place later this summer.
The factory in Georgetown is the largest for Toyota in North America. In addition to Camry, the Number 1 selling car 15 out of the last 16 years in the U.S., the Kentucky plant currently produces the Avalon and Venza. In 2015, the plant will become the first in the U.S. to make a Lexus vehicle, the ES350.
