Article by Christian Andrei, on March 1, 2013

Toyota will start to export U.S.-built Venza vehicles to Russia and Ukraine in 2013. Toyota already holds the title of being the all-time top exporter. In 2012, its exports had a 45% increase over the previous year with over 124,000 U.S.-assembled vehicles shipped to 21 global markets. Shigeki Terashi, president and COO of Toyota Motor North America, Inc., said that the company is “proud” that Toyota’s U.S. manufacturing operations continue to expand as a major supplier of vehicles for worldwide markets.

He said that this success can be attributed to its team members’ “dedication and high-quality work.” He anticipates that Toyota’s U.S. manufacturing base will be strengthened further with the export of Venza vehicles to Russia and Ukraine.

As soon as production starts this April, Toyota estimates that it will be able to export about 5,000 Venza vehicles to Russia and Ukraine in the first year of sales. Toyota’s Georgetown, Ky. plant will assemble these vehicles.

Toyota has invested $6 billion in this plant, which holds about 6,600 team members. This plant in Georgetown is Toyota’s biggest manufacturing facility outside of Japan. Venza units are exported to Russia and Ukraine will ship from Brunswick, Georgia.
