Toyota Manufacturing UK is the United Kingdom manufacturing operation of Toyota, established in December 1989. The vehicle manufacturing plant at Burnaston, Derbyshire, assembles cars. On 16 December 1992, the first car rolled off the production line, which was a Carina E. Since then, production has included Avensis, Corolla, and Auris models. An engine manufacturing factory is located on Deeside, North Wales.[1] As of June 2015, the two factories employ 3,800 staff.

The processes at Burnaston include stamping (pressing panels from rolls of steel), welding, painting, plastic mouldings (bumpers and instrument panels/dashboards) and assembly and at Deeside machining, assembly and aluminium casting.[2]

On 26 February 2007, then–Chancellor Gordon Brown visited the Burnaston facility, to celebrate the official launch of the Auris in the United Kingdom. TMUK used the occasion to announce an investment of £100 million in its Deeside factory, to build an petrol engine for the Auris.[3] Initial reporting on the engine called it a hybrid, and it was expected to be used as part of a Hybrid Synergy Drive system.

At its fastest speed, a car can come off the end of the production line approximately every 60 seconds.

Toyota Manufacturing UK, in partnership with Toyota Technology Challenge,[4] a national engineering and technology competition, which is aimed at secondary schools within the United Kingdom.
