Toyota has opened a $154-million expanded research and development center in York Township, Mich., that unifies several operations as part of the company's One Toyota plan.

The Toyota North American Research & Development purchasing and prototype development centers began operations on May 4.

With the move, Toyota shifted consolidated direct procurement and supplier engineering development talent from Erlanger, Kentucky, and vehicle development and powertrain from California.

"We are thrilled to celebrate our continued investment in Michigan, which contributes to our overall long-standing commitment to invest in America," said Jim Lentz, Toyota Motor North America's CEO. "Expanding the research and development campus in York Township is an incredible next step in Toyota’s journey in the U.S."
