Toyoda Gosei to Establish Engineering and Sales Office in Ohio, USA

May 20, 2019

Kiyosu, Japan, May 20, 2019: Toyoda Gosei Co., Ltd. plans to establish a satellite engineering and sales office of Toyoda Gosei North America Corporation (TGNA), the company’s regional headquarters for the Americas, in the city of Dublin, Ohio, USA to speed up the company’s response to the product development needs of its customers in the United States.

Certain design and sales functions located in TGNA’s head office in Troy, Michigan will be relocated to the new office near the Ohio office of Honda R&D Americas, Inc., a major customer of Toyoda Gosei. This is intended to speed up the development work for interior products and airbags. The number of engineering and sales employees will be increased to about 10 by the early 2020s.

Toyoda Gosei aims to continue expanding its business to respond rapidly to the development and production needs of automakers in the USA, a major market for the company.
