Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. (TEMA)

As of January 1, 2017, Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America (TEMA) in Erlanger, Kentucky, has consolidated with Toyota Motor North America (TMNA), Toyota’s North American headquarters, and relocated to Plano, Texas, closing the office in Torrance.

Toyota focuses its community investments on engagement and partnerships, versus sponsorships or pure funding. Meaning, our strategic priority is to support organizations with whom we can have a 360-degree engagement - combining dollars, volunteerism, and sharing of Toyota know-how. We simply believe this is the most meaningful and effective way for us to create sustainable impact for the needs of our communities.


Toyota and affiliates support programs in mobility, environment, youth and education, safety and diversity. For further guidelines, please see below.
