Toyota's partnership with Martha Stewart and her American Made initiative recently brought the TV personality to Georgetown, Kentucky, home of Toyota’s largest North American plant. While visiting Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc., Stewart got an exclusive behind the scenes look at what goes into producing Toyota vehicles, namely the all-new 2013 Avalon.
Stewart has built a comprehensive program to recognize and celebrate the brands and people who design, influence, and make products in the U.S.A. She is also recognizing the role of the 28 million American small business owners, as she believes this is a productive way to encourage prosperity and economic growth in America.

Designed and engineered in America and produced exclusively in Georgetown, Kentucky, the 2013 Avalon is Toyota’s flagship vehicle. Additional models manufactured at TMMK include Camry, Camry Hybrid and Venza, along with four-cylinder and V-6 engines and engine components. The Georgetown, Ky. plant employs 6,600 full time team members and represents a $6 billion investment.
