President’s message

2018 heralds the beginning of a new era for Toyota Australia. We ceased local manufacturing at the end of 2017 after 54 years of operation, concluding more than four years of transitional activities. The way in which our employees, past and present, dealt with this period of change, was remarkably dignified. Likewise, our suppliers were exceptional in their cooperation and transition, for which I am extremely grateful.

I sincerely thank our employees and suppliers for their great support during this time. Despite the challenges presented by the closure of manufacturing, coupled with the relocation of our sales and marketing operations from Sydney to Melbourne, we remained the top selling automotive company in Australia, for the 15th consecutive year. And, throughout this transition period, our dealer network has remained strong and improved its guest focused orientation.

Toyota Australia has now shifted into a new gear, that of being a sales, marketing and distribution company. Our company has analysed the trends in our global and local industry, and has now set our vision as “creating innovative mobility solutions for all Australians”.

As we work towards creating innovative mobility solutions, and in the long run, achieving zero emissions, there will be times ahead that will challenge us. Our Toyota DNA however, remains the same, that of continuous improvement and respect for people. I am certain that whatever the future may hold, we will continue to draw on these strengths towards an ever-better, sustainable future that contributes to the Australian society.

Matthew Callachor, President & CEO
