Kiichiro Toyoda, founder of the Toyota Motor Corporation, which in 2008 surpassed America’s General Motors as the world’s largest automaker, dies at the age of 57 in Japan on March 27, 1952.

Toyoda was born in Japan on June 11, 1894. His father Sakichi Toyoda was an inventor of textile machinery, including an automatic loom, and founded Toyoda Loom Works. (People called him “Japan’s Thomas Edison.”) By the late 1920s, Kiichiro Toyoda, who worked for his father’s company, had begun plans to develop an automobile. (Sakichi Toyoda died on October 30, 1930, at the age of 63.) In 1933, Kiichiro Toyoda established an auto division within Toyoda Loom Works, which released a prototype vehicle two years later. In 1937, Toyota Motor Corporation was formed as a spinoff of Toyoda Loom Works. (“Toyota” was reportedly considered a luckier name than “Toyoda” and is easier to write in Japanese characters).

The new car company initially looked to the U.S. auto industry for inspiration. According to The New York Times: “Over the years of its rise to the top, Toyota has made no secret of how much it has learned from Detroit. Its first car, the AA, was a blatant copy of (or an homage to) a Chevrolet sedan. Its executives scoured every corner of the Ford Motor Company in the 1950s, taking home ideas to Japan that later inspired the Toyota Production System.”

Kiichiro Toyoda died in 1952, but his company continued to grow. In 1966, Toyota introduced its compact Corolla model, which in 1997 became the world’s best-selling car, with more than 35 million sold at the time. The oil crisis of the 1970s made Toyota’s small, fuel-efficient vehicles increasingly attractive in America. In the 1980s, the automaker launched the popular Camry compact car and 4Runner sport utility vehicle. Toyota’s luxury car line, Lexus, debuted in the U.S. in 1989. The automaker introduced the planet’s first mass-produced hybrid vehicle, the Prius, in 1997 in Japan and worldwide in 2001. By the end of the 1990s, Toyota had produced over 100 million vehicles in Japan.

In 2008, Toyota reached another milestone when it sold more cars and trucks than General Motors—8.97 million vehicles versus 8.35 million vehicles—and claimed the sales crown that the American auto giant had held for more than 70 years. However, Toyota, like the rest of the auto industry, was hurt by the global financial crisis and in May 2009 reported the company’s first-ever annual loss.

Toyota Celebrates the Life and Vision of Founder Kiichiro Toyoda on the120th Anniversary of his Birth

Toyota City, Japan, June 10, 2014―Toyota will commemorate the 120th anniversary of the birth of its founder Kiichiro Toyoda (June 11, 1894 to March 27, 1952) by holding a series of related exhibits at cultural and exhibit facilities in Japan. The unprecedented tie-up involves five facilities, and will convey the spirit of research and creativity espoused by Kiichiro Toyoda in a variety of venue-specific ways.

The Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology (in Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture), which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, will present exhibits about Kiichiro Toyoda throughout the year. A special exhibit called “Kiichiro’s Dream”, shedding light on the life and personality of Toyota's founder, will open on June 28. The exhibit will show, from a manufacturing perspective, Kiichiro Toyoda’s ideas and research as he aimed to lay the foundations for the Japanese automotive industry. The museum is also planning a tour in September of sites closely connected to Kiichiro Toyoda’s life, followed by a second special exhibit in October entitled "Toyota’s Evolution: Kiichiro’s Dream, Then and Now".

The Toyota Kuragaike Commemorative Hall (in Toyota City, Aichi Prefecture) will enlarge its permanent exhibit in its space dedicated to telling the story of Toyota's origins, and will conduct tours in Kiichiro’s former residence, which is usually not open to the public.

An exhibit beginning June 11 at the Toyota Automobile Museum (in Nagakute City, Aichi Prefecture) will display cars closely associated with Kiichiro Toyoda and convey his passion for passenger car development. A similar car exhibit, jointly planned with the Toyota Automobile Museum, will open on the same day at Mega Web (in Koto-ku, Tokyo).

At the end of December, the Toyota Kaikan Museum (in Toyota City, Aichi Prefecture) will run an exhibit called "Returning to Toyota’s Roots: Lessons from our Founders" in the museum's Corporation and Society Area. The exhibit will cover the spirit of manufacturing created by Kiichiro and other key leaders early in Toyota's history, and the roots of the Toyota Way philosophy that still endures.

This Day In History: Toyota Founder Dies

On March 27, 1952, Kiichiro Toyoda died. He was the man responsible for transforming his father’s textile machinery business into what grew to become the world’s largest automaker: Toyota.

(Welcome to Today in History, the series where we dive into important historical events that have had a significant impact on the automotive or racing world. If you have something you’d like to see that falls on an upcoming weekend, let me know at eblackstock [at] jalopnik [dot] com.)

You read that right. Toyota wasn’t initially created as a car company. Sakichi Toyoda, called “Japan’s Thomas Edison,” invented the automatic loom, and he hired his son at the company when Kiichiro was old enough to work there.

But Kiichiro Toyoda had other plans. By the late 1920s, he was dreaming up different cars, and in 1933, he established an automobile division of his father’s company. Two years later, he had released two cars.

So, where did the name “Toyota” come from? According to History , it was easier to spell in Japanese characters and was considered luckier because it could be written with eight strokes of the pen.

Whatever luck was imbued in the name paid off, because Toyota grew to accomplish great things despite a rocky start. Ford and GM had built factories in Japan in the 1920s, so Toyoda drew his inspiration for some of his first cars from his American competitors by literally buying local Ford or GM products and reverse engineering them. As a result, the company’s first real car, the AA, looked like a knockoff Chevy sedan. But people were into it—they liked the fact that they could buy a Japanese-built car, and Toyoda is said to have paved the way for Japanese automakers in a critical time before American motor companies could completely dominate production.

That said, things quickly went south. The company was forced to take a break during World War II and didn’t resume production again until 1947, at which point materials were hard to source and people just didn’t have the money to buy them.

Despite his death coming two years later, Toyoda resigned from the company in 1950. The company was going out of business, and the auto union went on a strike that lasted two months due to layoffs and wage reductions. He was succeeded by Tazio Ishida, who had been the chief executive of the Toyoda Automatic Loom company. In 1957, Toyoda’s cousin Eiji Toyoda took over.

Because of his early death at age 57, Kiichiro Toyoda never saw his company make its rebound. The Korean War saw the American military putting in orders for Japanese-made vehicles, which kick-started the auto industry. In 1957, the Crown became the first Japanese vehicle imported to the United States. In the 1960s, Toyota began to expand its manufacturing efforts into other countries. By the 1980s, Toyota was building cars in the US and pursuing a global motorsport effort. In 2008, it became the world’s largest automaker.

It all happened after Toyoda’s death, but his legacy still lives on in the name and roots he endowed to the company. It turned out to be quite lucky indeed.

A Strong Commitment to Invention

After returning to Japan from his observation trip to the United States and Europe, Sakichi labored to raise capital and in 1911 he established the independently operated Toyoda Jido Shokufu Kojo (Toyoda Automatic Weaving Mill) as a proving ground for his inventions in the Noritake-Shinmachi area of Nishi-ward, Nagoya.

This is now the site of the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology.

In 1914, Sakichi introduced new spinning facilities at the mill based on his realization that high-quality spinning yarn was essential for the successful development of his automatic loom. At this time, its name was revised to Toyoda Jido Boshoku Kojo (Toyoda Automatic Spinning and Weaving Mill) because the mill also started spinning operations. Benefiting from buoyant economic conditions during World War I, the spinning and weaving business continued expanding year after year. With the aim of carrying out smooth business operations under these favorable circumstances, in 1918 Toyoda Boshoku (Toyoda Spinning and Weaving Co., Ltd.) was established with investments from relatives and close friends. Sakichi became President but the company was effectively managed by Risaburo Toyoda, the son-in-law of Sakichi, who held the position of Managing Director.

Toyota Motor Corporation

Toyota Motor Corporation, Japanese Toyota Jidōsha KK, Japanese parent company of the Toyota Group. It became the largest automobile manufacturer in the world for the first time in 2008, surpassing General Motors. Many of its about 1,000 subsidiary companies and affiliates are involved in the production of automobiles, automobile parts, and commercial and industrial vehicles. Headquarters are in Toyota City, an industrial city east of Nagoya, Japan.

In 1933 Toyoda Kiichiro founded what later became the Toyota Motor Corporation as a division of the Toyoda Automatic Loom Works, Ltd. (later Toyota Industries Corporation, now a subsidiary), a Japanese manufacturer founded by his father, Toyoda Sakichi. Its first production car, the Model AA sedan, was released in 1936. The following year the division was incorporated as the Toyota Motor Company, Ltd., headed by Kiichiro. (The company’s name was changed to Toyota, which has a more pleasing sound in Japanese.) Toyota subsequently established several related companies, including Toyoda Machine Works, Ltd. (1941), and Toyota Auto Body, Ltd. (1945). During World War II the company suspended production of passenger cars and concentrated on trucks. Faced with wrecked facilities and a chaotic economy in the aftermath of World War II, the company did not resume making passenger cars until 1947 with the introduction of the Model SA.

By the 1950s Toyota’s automobile production factories were back in full operation, and to gain competitiveness the company began a careful study of American automobile manufacturers, owing to perceived U.S. technical and economic superiority. Toyota executives toured the production facilities of corporations, including the Ford Motor Company, to observe the latest automobile manufacturing technology and in turn implemented it in their own facilities, yielding a nearly immediate increase in efficiency. In 1957 Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., was established, and the following year the company released the Toyopet sedan, its first model to be marketed in the United States it was poorly received because of its high price and lack of horsepower. The Land Cruiser, a 4 × 4 utility vehicle released in 1958, was more successful. In 1965 the Toyopet, completely redesigned for American drivers, was re-released as the Toyota Corona, marking the company’s first major success in the United States.

During the 1960s and ’70s the company expanded at a rapid rate and began exporting large numbers of automobiles to foreign markets. Toyota acquired such companies as Hino Motors, Ltd. (1966), a manufacturer of buses and large trucks Nippondenso Company, Ltd., a maker of electrical auto components and Daihitsu Motor Company, Ltd. (1967). For several decades Toyota was Japan’s largest automobile manufacturer. The company continued to thrive in the American market as well, gaining a reputation for its low-cost, fuel-efficient, and reliable vehicles such as the Corolla, which was released in the United States in 1968.

The company took its present name in 1982, when Toyota Motor Company was merged with Toyota Motor Sales Company, Ltd. Two years later Toyota partnered with General Motors Corporation in the creation of New United Motor Manufacturing, Inc., a dual-brand manufacturing plant in California, where Toyota began U.S. production in 1986.

The company experienced significant growth well into the 21st century, with innovations such as its luxury brand, Lexus (1989), and the first mass-produced hybrid-powered vehicle in the world, the Prius (1997). In 1999 Toyota was listed on both the London Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange. The company continued to expand to new markets—specifically targeting younger buyers with the launch of its Scion brand (2003) and unveiling the world’s first luxury hybrid vehicle, the Lexus RX 400h (2005).

However, the company subsequently faced significant financial challenges: plummeting sales stemming from the global financial crisis of 2008 as well as an international safety recall of more than eight million vehicles in 2010, which temporarily halted the production and sales of several of its top models. Beginning in 2014, millions of vehicles manufactured by Toyota and several other car companies were recalled by regulators in the United States because of potentially malfunctioning airbags produced by the Japanese automotive-parts supplier Takata. The recall was “the largest and most complex safety recall in U.S. history,” according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Today Toyota has assembly plants and distributors in many countries. In addition to automotive products, its subsidiaries manufacture rubber and cork materials, steel, synthetic resins, automatic looms, and cotton and woolen goods. Others deal in real estate, prefabricated housing units, and the import and export of raw materials.

Cars History

The history of the Toyota company started in 1933 when Toyoda Automatic Loom Works company, which originally was involved in textile industry, opened a car department. It was opened by the eldest son of the owner of Sakichi Toyoda, Kiichiro Toyoda, who subsequently made the Toyota car brand well known all around the world.

In 1935 work on the first passenger car Model AA was completed. Model A1 and the first truck Model G1 were also designed. In 1936 first four trucks G1 were exported to the northern China. A year later, in 1937, the automobile department became a separate company, called Toyota Motor Co., Ltd.

In the postwar period industry of Japan experienced not the best times.

In the early 50s Taiichi Ohno introduced a unique production management system “Kamban”, which allowed to reduce production loss: materials, time and capacity. In 1962 the system was integrated in all the Toyota group companies and proved to be effective.

In 1952 the founder of the company Kiichiro Toyoda died.

In the 50’s Toyota developed its own designs and made extensive research. Toyota Motor Sales, USA, was founded in the United States. The first attempt to export Toyota vehicles in to the USA market ended in failure.

In 1961 a small economical car Toyota Publica was produced. It became very popular and in 1962 Toyota celebrated a one millionth car in its history. Toyota Corona exported in to the USA in 1965 quickly became widespread and was considered to be the most popular Japanese car outside the country. In 1966, Toyota introduced its, perhaps, the most popular car – Corolla, production of which successfully continues up to this day.

In the early 80s, the company Toyota Motor Co., Ltd. and Toyota Motor Sales Co., Ltd. integrated into Toyota Motor Corporation. At the same time production of the model Camry began. By that time, Toyota was the largest automobile manufacturer in Japan and the third largest in the world in terms of production.

In 1983, Toyota signed an agreement with General Motors.

One of the main events of the 80s was a foundation of the new Toyota division – Lexus, which was aimed for production of high-end cars. Lexus started to produce luxury expensive cars and in 1989 Lexus LS400 and Lexus ES250 were introduced to the public.

In 1990 Toyota opened its own design center – Tokyo Design Center.

In 1999, was produced one hundred millionth Toyota car in Japan.

Today, Toyota is one of the world’s largest car manufacturers. Of course, it is also the largest Japanese auto company, which produces more than 5.5 million vehicles a year. In 2002, Toyota entered into a new sphere, taking part in Formula 1 racing.

Executive summary: Founder of Toyota Motor Corporation

Kiichiro Toyoda was the son of famed inventor and entrepreneur Sakichi Toyoda, and the driving force behind establishment of Toyota Motor Corporation. As a young man he studied engineering at the University of Tokyo, then traveled to England, where he worked at Platt Brothers and Company, a leading manufacturer of textile machinery. He later came to the United States, where he studied American manufacturing techniques. After returning to Japan he worked at his father's loom-making business, Toyoda Industries Corporation, where he engineered improvements to the looms' high-draft spinning frames, and patented a carding machine. He began his research into automotives by dismantling and reassembling an imported motorcycle, and briefly considered the feasibility of a charcoal-powered engine.

After his father's death, he convinced Toyoda Industries' new president, his adoptive brother Risaburo Toyoda, to fund research into auto-making. Kiichiro Toyoda purchased a new Chevrolet and brought in several of Japan's top engineers to disassemble and reassemble it. By 1934 Toyoda and his team had designed and built their first gasoline-powered engine, and convinced stockholders to fully fund his new division. In 1935 Toyoda built the prototype for its first car, combining Japanese components with Ford and Chevy parts under a Chrysler body to construct what they called Model A1. According to legend, Kiichiro Toyoda drove the prototype to his father's gravesite, to show what he had accomplished.

Toyoda vehicles were manufactured beginning in July 1935, and in 1936 the spelling of the nameplate was altered from Toyoda to Toyota, as Toyoda himself believed the new name was easier to pronounce (the family name, when presented in English, remains Toyoda). The auto division was quickly successful and was spun off as a separate business, the Toyota Motor Corporation, in 1937, with Toyoda as Vice President. He became president in 1941, but in 1950, with the business near bankruptcy in Japan's post-war recession, Toyota Motor Corp announced massive layoffs and its workers went on strike. To settle the strike, Toyoda and other top executives tendered their resignations, and Toyoda died two years later.

Toyota Motor Corporation Founder Kiichiro Toyoda Inducted into Automotive Hall of Fame.

Detroit, Michigan, July 20, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Cited for his extraordinary vision and entrepreneurial spirit, Toyota Motor Corporation founder and former president Kiichiro Toyoda was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame last evening in Detroit.

Kiichiro Toyoda was one of five industry leaders named to this year's Automotive Hall of Fame induction class. He is credited with expanding Toyoda Automatic Loom Works, a successful textile business created by his father, Sakichi Toyoda, into the world of automotive manufacturing in 1933. Kiichiro Toyoda served as president of Toyota Motor Corporation from 1941 to 1950. His technical skills and leadership forged the foundations of a company that would eventually grow to be one of the most respected corporations in the world. (See here for more information about Kiichiro Toyoda.)

"Kiichiro Toyoda embodied the foresight and innovation that few people in history possess, demonstrated by his significant contributions to the automotive industry. We are honored to include him in the 2018 induction class to the Automotive Hall of Fame", stated Ramzi Hermiz, President and CEO, Shiloh Industries and Board Chairman, Automotive Hall of Fame.

A contingent of Toyota Motor Corporation executives, led by Chairman of the Board Takeshi Uchiyamada, were on hand at the Automotive Hall of Fame Induction and Awards Gala Ceremony on July 19. Mr. Uchiyamada accepted Kiichiro Toyoda's award on behalf of the company and the family.

"America was a special place for Kiichiro. He was amazed by the prevalence of automobiles driving around U.S. cities in the late 1920s, and that was the catalyst for his determination to establish an automotive industry in his home country. As a successor and his grandson, I am very grateful and proud that Kiichiro has been inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame in America," said Akio Toyoda, president of Toyota Motor Corporation. "Kiichiro boldly changed Toyota's business model from automatic looms to automobiles without being constrained by previous successes. As his induction comes at a time when our industry is facing profound changes, I believe his message today would be to work hard to help the industry revolutionize the future of mobility, even if success is not immediate. I deeply appreciate the Automotive Hall of Fame for inducting my grandfather and our founder," he added.

The celebration was highlighted by the presence of a 1936 Toyoda AA replica vehicle, on loan from the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. The Toyoda AA was designed and manufactured under the guidance of Kiichiro Toyoda. The AA was the company's first production automobile and served as Kiichiro Toyoda's initial opportunity to experiment with waste-free and efficiency-focused production techniques, including the famous "just-in-time" concept. The vehicle helped pave the way for the renowned "Toyota Production System."

The History of Toyota

. Sakichi Toyoda Toyota Wooden Hand Loom Chuo Spinning Company Toyoda Boshoku Diversifying into Automotive Components In the spinning and weaving business, Toyoda Boshoku faced frequent difficulties, but its diversification into automotive components enabled it to achieve a level of product engineering that satisfies customers worldwide, continually striving to develop new products and technologies in business fields related to auto interiors, exteriors, and engines. In 1890, Sakichi completed his first invention:the Toyoda Wooden Hand Loom. Returning to his village, Sakichi began working to improving the hand loom, whichi at the time was a clumsy and inconvenient device. This device was the first in a long line of looms that Sakichi would make. Sakichi next turned its research efforts toward power looms, and in November 1896 he invented the Toyoda Power Loom. This steam-driven loom, made of a combination of wood and iron, was Japan's first power loom. The Toyoda Power Loom was the first step toward the full-scale development of power looms. In February 1942, companies were being consolidated under the wartime command economy.Toyoda Boshoku was merged with an affiliate, becoming Chuo Spinning Company. The photo shows the company's Kariya works. It was subsequently again merged, this time with Toyota Motor Co., Ltd.(now the Toyota Motor Corporation), which Toyoda Automatic Loom Works(now Toyota Industries.


. Toyota and Why It Is So Successful The History of Toyota For organizational convenience I will discuss Toyota history as follows: • The start • The 1940s • The 1950s • Etc. The start. The Toyota Motor Corp. (TMC) had its beginning in 1933 when it was established as a division within the Toyoda Automatic Loom Works, Ltd. The founder of Toyota was Kiichiro Toyoda (1894–1952), the son of Sakichi Toyoda (1867–1930). The values that have underpinned Toyota success startedwith Sakichi who was the son of a carpenter. Sakichi went from carpentry, which he had learned from his father, to making looms for weaving. He then came up with many inventionsthat resulted in remarkable improvements in looms. For example, by 1924 he had developed the famous “Type G” automatic loom, but not without much of that “hard work and persistence.” One of the important features of Toyoda’s looms was a device that would automatically stop the loom should a thread break. This prevented any defective cloth from being produced. This concept of building into a machine features that prevent poor quality is know as jidoka and would become one of the TMC’s two “pillars” of the Toyota Production System (TPS) According to Wikipedia (Sakichi Toyoda, 2006) Sakichi is often referred to as the “King of Japanese Inventors” and as the “father of the Japanese industrial.

. HISTORY of TOYOTA The history of Toyota started in 1933 with the company being a division of Toyoda Automatic Loom Works devoted to the production of automobiles under the direction of the founder's son, Kiichiro Toyoda.[1] Kiichiro Toyoda had traveled to Europe and the United States in 1929 to investigate automobile production and had begun researching gasoline-powered engines in 1930. Toyoda Automatic Loom Works was encouraged to develop automobile production by the Japanese government, which needed domestic vehicle production, due to the war with China.[2] In 1934, the division produced its first Type A Engine, which was used in the first Model A1 passenger car in May 1935 and theG1 truck in August 1935. Production of the Model AA passenger car started in 1936. Early vehicles bear a striking resemblance to the DodgePower Wagon and Chevrolet, with some parts actually interchanging with their American originals.[2] Although the Toyota Group is best known today for its cars, it is still in the textile business and still makes automatic looms, which are now computerized, and electric sewing machines which are available worldwide. NAME Toyota Motor Co. was established as an independent and separate company in 1937. Although the founding family's name was written in theKanji "豊田" (rendered as "Toyoda"), the company name was changed to a similar word in katakana - トヨタ (rendered as.

Shackleton’s Way: Analysis & Review Sara Mleso Weber State University Shackleton’s Way: Analysis & Review Unfortunately, I missed the opportunity to participate in the group discussion in person on the day we were on campus. I have since emailed both particpants in my group, Anna Guzman and Tara Rhodes, who both responded promptly that everyone was submitting short answers to the questions in our discussion group, to compare and analyze. I have since compared and reviewed their answers with mine and we have similar opinions on Shackleton’s leadership traits, the meaning of the great achievement of failure to us all seemed to be that his greatest achievement was successfully keeping his team of men alive for two years. Not only did he keep them alive, they were for the most part happy and positive until the end. I think we also all agreed that leading by example was the greatest motivator he gave to his team.
