The plant also celebrated 35 years of operation.

The president of Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky, Susan Elkington, says the milestone means something special to all who are a part of the process.

“People can say ‘Wow! 10 million Camrys,’ but that didn’t happen overnight, it’s about building one Camry at a time,” Elkington said. “Our team members don’t look at the great big number, they look at the Camry that’s in front of them. And they know, someday, someone’s gonna put their family in that Camry.”

The 1,300-acre Georgetown campus represents an eight-billion dollar investment and employs about 10,000 Kentuckians.
