After over 50 years in Australia, Toyota has grown to be one of Australia’s leading automotive companies.

Toyota Australia is a leading manufacturer, distributor and exporter of vehicles, with a market share of 18 percent as at the end of the 2014 calendar year.

The company has sales and distribution branches in mainland Australian states, except Western Australia, where an independent company distributes Toyota and Lexus branded vehicles on Toyota Australia’s behalf.

More than half of the Camry and Aurion vehicles manufactured at the company’s plant in Altona are exported overseas – to 13 markets in the Middle East, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands

  • Honour the language and spirit of the law of every nation and undertake open and fair corporate activities to be a good corporate citizen of the world
  • Respect the culture and customs of every nation and contribute to economic and social development through corporate activities in the communities
  • Dedicate ourselves to providing clean and safe products and to enhancing the quality of life everywhere through all our activities
  • Create and develop advanced technologies and provide outstanding products and services that fulfil the needs of customers worldwide
  • Foster a corporate culture that enhances individual creativity and teamwork value, while honouring mutual trust and respect between labour and management
  • Pursue growth in harmony with the global community through innovative management
