Turn-key Plant Change Over

  • Category: Construction, Installation, Retooling
  • Client: Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Baja California

Project Summary

The sales of Toyota Tacoma trucks are exploding around the world. To keep up with demand, Toyota chose to expanded their production facility in Baja California. LG Fox was selected by Toyota to perform the expansion which included a large amount of construction and equipment installation.

Over the course of this one and a half year project, we installed 15 new component lines including chassis, trim, frame, doors, and the final line. This also included excavating and pouring concrete pits, equipment installation, and retooling the entire assembly shop.

LG Fox carefully planned and executed the work to allow the plant to remain in production the entire time. Our engineers and the four sub-contracted service providers we managed worked 10 hours a day, six days a week for 52 weeks. Our work continued during weekends and shutdowns for six months, including relocating existing equipment during the Christmas shutdown.
