Toyota: A Brief History And Description
With 10.2 million sales in 2014 Toyota are the largest car manufacturer in the world and the 13th biggest company in the world in terms of revenue. Yet Toyota did not even start life as a car manufacturer. In 1924 the founder of Toyota, Sakichi Toyoda, invented an automatic loom that stopped running when something went wrong in the machine. This invention increased productivity in cotton production and made the process more safe; a British company recognised these improvements and bought the patent for the machine in 1929. The funds generated from this sale were used by Sakichi Toyoda to begin the production of cars such as the A1 and G1 passenger cars and by 1937 the Toyota Motor company was born.
After WW2 the Toyota brand grew rapidly with new markets opened in the United states and Europe. To reflect their new position as a global company they opened manufactiuring plants in the US in the 1980s and also paired up with General Motors to launch New United Motor Manufacturing Inc. At the end of that decade Toyota would launch the Lexus model, a luxury car that remains one of their most iconic.
The other huge develeopment for Toyota in 1989 was the founding of Toyota Manufacturing UK (TMUK), manufacturing plants in Derbyshire and North Wales would go on to develop products for Toyota like the Avensis, Auris, Corolla and Carina in the 90s and 2000s.
In the last few years Toyota have become the biggest seller of electric vehicles, which has helped them retain their position as the world’s biggest car manufacturer in 2016.
