Almost forty years ago, Toyota opened its first U.S. manufacturing plant in Long Beach.* Since then, Toyota Auto Body Company, Inc. (TABC, Inc.) has produced a range of automotive parts, and currently produces sheet metal components, steering columns, catalytic converters, and weld sub- assemblies for Toyota’s North American manufacturing facilities and for export to Japan. TABC also tests, inspects and repackages end-of-life hybrid vehicle batteries. Our success with TABC paved the way for Toyota’s ongoing manufacturing investment in North America and continues today in California — and across the U.S.
*Toyota vehicles and components are built using U.S. and globally sourced parts.
