Toyota - Hutchinson Argentina: United for Industrial Growth
Increasing Local Content
In 2005, with the launch of the HiLux pickup truck, Toyota asked Hutchinson Argentina to supply car body seals, fluid transfer hoses and antivibration parts. The Japanese company's manufacturing culture, which is similar to Hutchinson Argentina's, has been deployed, honed and pursued throughout the last nine years of production.
Toyota implements policies to oversee and support its key suppliers. As part of this process, Hutchinson Argentina plays an active role in Jishuken agreements, whereby it works with other suppliers to identify opportunities for improving safety, productivity, quality and logistics.
In addition, Toyota remains committed to Hutchinson Argentina as a strategic partner in the country.
