This was a big week for the workers at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky (TMMK) plant. Twenty-six years after the first car rolled off of the assembly line there in May 1988, the facility turned out its 10-millionth vehicle.  Like that initial unit, this latest benchmark car also was a white Camry -- although this example carried a Hybrid badge on its front fenders. Unlike Job One which has a permanent home at the TMMK facility in Georgetown, the 10-millionth car will become the property of one lucky employee following a blind drawing to be held later this summer. 

Currently Toyota's largest American plant, total investment in Georgetown has now reached $5.9 billion and it has a work force of 7,000 that also turns out regular and hybrid Camry and Avalon sedans as well as the Venza crossover plus 4-cylinder and V6 engines. Georgetown is expected to add 750 more workers by late next year when it will become home to the first U.S.-assembled Lexus model, the 2016 ES 350 sedan.
