Columbus-based Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A. Inc. is planning to add up to 71 jobs over the next two years. The subsidiary of Japan-based Toyota Industries Corp. relocated its headquarters from California in 2012.
TMHU currently employs more than 180 in Bartholomew County. Its facility is connected to a Toyota Industrial Equipment Mfg. Inc. manufacturing plant and both are part of the 126-acre Toyota campus, which includes a total of more than 1,400 workers in the city.
Human Resources and Training and Development Director Tracy Stachniak says "relocating TMHU’s headquarters to Columbus was a great move for us. Indiana offers a robust economy, Midwest hospitality and an attractive overall lifestyle. It’s a great place to work and live." At the time of the move, TMHU invested $4.6 million into expanding its office. It has added 79 Indiana jobs over the last four years.
The company has had a presence in Columbus for more than 25 years. The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered TMHU up to $100,000 in training grants that are contingent upon the company meeting its job creation targets. The state says 12 Japanese companies have announced investments in Indiana operations this year.
