Following the community quarantine set by the government wherein several industries are required to temporarily suspend their operations, Toyota Motor Philippines has started its operations in Santa Rosa, Laguna plant last May 18, 2020.
This is a welcome development as many businesses are affected by the lockdown due to pandemic and with the resumption of operation, TMP appreciates this move because this would stimulate economic activities in the country.
Prior to resumption of plant operations, Toyota Motor Philippines has set all the precautionary measures in the plant to ensure safety and adherence to production protocols. All reporting Team Members have been briefed on the safety guidelines and measures that will be strictly followed in the plant. The overall workforce currently reporting on the single-shift operation is within the 50% cap mandated by the government under MECQ guidelines.
With the resumption of plant operations, Toyota will be able to respond better to the needs of its customers. As of May 20, 2020, 66 out of the 70 Toyota dealer outlets nationwide have resumed operations with safety and sanitation guidelines also in place.
Strict social distancing measures are implemented within the showroom, customers are encouraged to set an appointment before visiting their nearest dealers. The TMP dealers’ directory can be accessed at https://toyota.com.ph/dealer.
