Kiyosu, Japan, July 22, 2022: Toyoda Gosei Co., Ltd. Group company Toyoda Gosei East Japan Co., Ltd. has begun production of large plastic automotive parts at its Miyagi Ohira Plant in July 2022.
The Miyagi Ohira Plant will produce front grilles and other plastic painted products close to its customer, Toyota Motor East Japan, Inc. These products were previously supplied from other regions in Japan, and nearby production will improve competitiveness.
