Our Global History
While our history in Jackson County, Georgia is relatively brief, our origin dates back to 1926 in Kariya, Japan, with the establishment of Toyota Industries Corporation. The company was founded by Sakichi Toyoda, a visionary Japanese entrepreneur and inventor.
In 1890, at just 23 years old, Sakichi invented the Toyoda Wooden Hand Loom from his inspiration of using machines to help neighboring farmers be more efficient in weaving fabrics. By improving everyday items, he sought to contribute to the improvement of the society around him. He continued to perfect the loom over the next several years and started Toyota Industries Corporation to manufacture and sell his automatic looms.
Starting small, Toyota Industries Corporation expanded into today’s global company with product diversification into other textile machinery, materials-handling equipment, electronics, automobiles, and components – including the manufacture of the automobile air-conditioning compressors and DC-AC inverters that we produce here in Georgia for the North American market.
Fortune magazine has recognized Toyota Industries Corporation as the World’s Most Admired Motor Vehicle Parts Supplier.
