TOYOTA ANNOUNCES 1992 SUPPLIER AWARD WINNERS

 GEORGETOWN, Ky., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Toyota Motor Manufacturing, U.S.A., Inc. presented awards today for outstanding service in 1992 to 18 of its 174 suppliers located in the United States. The awards were given to companies that have excelled in the areas of quality, delivery and value engineering/value analysis activity.
 The award recipients are located in seven states, including 10 in Kentucky, two in Tennessee, two in Indiana and one each in Illinois, South Carolina, Maine and North Carolina.
 "The number of awards presented each year increases, as does our commitment to manufacture the highest quality product possible. The Toyota Camry built here is widely regarded as one of the best cars made in the U.S.," said Alex Warren, senior executive vice president at TMM. "Our U.S. suppliers are truly partners in helping us build that quality."
 "Suppliers play a key role in the overall success of TMM," said Tom Zawacki, TMM's assistant general manager of parts and components purchasing. "Each of our suppliers must meet strict requirements for quality, delivery and innovative cost reduction, but these award winners have performed so well that they stand out. We appreciate their outstanding commitment to quality and service."
 Toyota Motor Corporation will purchase $5 billion in parts, components and raw materials from U.S. suppliers by 1994. TMM's purchasing efforts in Georgetown will be responsible for over half of this overall corporate goal.
 The manufacturing facility in Georgetown, which currently employs 4,500, now produces more than 200,000 Camrys annually. Production capacity will double and employment will increase to 6,000 when the new expansion facility comes on-line in 1994.
