Toyota PH restarts plant production

By Bernie Cahiles-Magkilat

After temporarily halting production to comply with the quarantine guidelines set by the government, leading automotive manufacturer Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has resumed operations in its Santa Rosa, Laguna plant beginning May 18, 2020.


In a statement, TMP said that prior to resumption of plant operations, precautionary measures were conducted in the plant to ensure safety and adherence to production protocols. All reporting Team Members have been briefed on the safety guidelines and measures that will be strictly followed in the plant.

“The overall workforce currently reporting on single-shift operation is within the 50 percent cap mandated by the government under modified Enhanced Community Quarantine guidelines,” the company said.

With the resumption of plant operations and as more areas in the country ease into more relaxed community quarantine guidelines, Toyota will be able to respond better to the needs of its customers.

As of May 20, 2020, 66 out of the 70 Toyota dealer outlets nationwide have resumed operations with safety and sanitation guidelines also in place. Due to social distancing measures implemented within the showroom, customers are encouraged to set an appointment before visiting their nearest dealers. The TMP dealers’ directory can be accessed at

Aside from reopening of dealerships, five service centers have also resumed as of May 20. These are Toyota Alabang Service Center, Toyota Shaw Service Center, Toyota North EDSA Service Center, Toyota Davao Body and Paint Center, and Toyota Negros Occidental Service Center.
