Toyota has announced that nine graduates of the first Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT) program will become full-time members of the team at Toyota Texas. The program was launched two years ago as a collaboration between Toyota Texas and Alamo Colleges as a means to strengthen the future of both Toyota and Bexar County’s workforce.

Currently, more than 100 students take part in the AMT program, which began in 2013. Through the program, they receive valuable classroom experience as well as practical, hands-on experience in cutting-edge manufacturing facilities. Graduates have the potential to earn as much as $50,000 a year plus added benefits.

“The graduates’ incredible efforts, excellent teamwork and dedication to continuous improvement impressed everyone at Toyota, so we extended full-time job offers to all nine graduates who applied,” said Joe DaRosa, president of Toyota Texas. “Our partnership with Alamo Colleges demonstrates that when good ideas are shared, great things can happen, and we’re thrilled that these fine young graduates will join our team.”

Toyota Texas currently employs 2,900 and is responsible for the assembly of the Tundra and Tacoma pickups for the North American market. The plant produces more than 200,000 trucks every year.
