Toyota moving U.S. headquarters to Texas
Toyota is one of the higher profile companies to do this. There are many others. Some come to Texas, others to other states.LOS ANGELES — Toyota announced on Monday that it will move its national headquarters to Plano, Texas, after a half-century in the Los Angeles suburbs.
The company will create a campus north of Dallas that will bring together 4,000 employees from manufacturing, sales and marketing and corporate operations around the country. Also moving will be Toyota Financial, its financing arm.
A company statement said the automaker is trying to create a "One Toyota" vision for the U.S. and Canada.
With its worldwide headquarters in Japan, Toyota's U.S. operation has headquartered in Southern California for more than 50 years. Most employees affected by the move, which begins in 2016, work on a sprawling campus in Torrance.
We'd prefer it if the Californians who move to Texas to keep their jobs don't bring the ideology that ruined California with them.
Texans do for themselves, they don't look to the government for everything. We like it that way.
