Confirmed: Toyota to Shut Down NUMMI Production
It's been long rumored, but is now confirmed by Toyota that they are going to stop production at their ground breaking NUMMI plant in Fremont, CA.
Toyota will move production to other plants, BusinessWeek reports.
It is a sad day, as NUMMI was the first real proof that Toyota's model would work in the U.S. with American workers. I worked under a fantastic plant manager at GM who had been one of the first American GM managers to learn there… and he learned well. And I learned a lot because of that, about Lean and about leadership and transformational change.
