Assembled in the Toyota plant in Cumaná, with an investment of 30 million dollars, the seventh generation of Corolla is the extraordinary result of the perseverance, preparation, individual effort and teamwork of thousands of men and women that make up the workforce of this company.
More than 70 workers from the Plant traveled to countries such as Japan, Brazil and Thailand, where they received training in various processes related to the assembly of the Corolla 2015 and, in parallel, from these countries they sent 60 instructors who offered instruction and training to the personnel of Plant. In this way, the exchange of information and the training of workers in key processes was ensured.
On the other hand, Toyota de Venezuela, aware of its role as a generator of change and progress, worked in synergy with national suppliers in order to develop more than 150 parts and parts produced locally. In each unit produced, the stamped floors, the interior trim of the vehicle, certain plastic parts, the air conditioning equipment, the shock absorbers and the coil springs, among others, are being incorporated, which allows us to affirm that the new Corolla 2015 is the model with greater content of local pieces in the country.
