MetoKote earns tier one status to Toyota Motor Manufacturing



Published July 12, 2011
MetoKote Corporation has achieved tier one status to Toyota Motor Manufacturing. It is the only dedicated coating services company in North America to earn this distinction. Through its San Antonio, TX facility MetoKote provides electro-deposition or e-coat application services on 100 percent of Toyota’s Tundra and Tacoma pick-up truck window frames produced at the automaker’s Texas assembly facility.

MetoKote’s San Antonio facility—established in 2006—is located on the Toyota supplier campus and is on a 12-hour shipment window with the automotive manufacturer. MetoKote’s proprietary inventory tracking system (MITS) is tied to Toyota’s electronic data interchange system and manages precisely how many parts have been received, where they are in the coating process, and when they are scheduled for shipment. In addition to providing e-coat services directly to Toyota, MetoKote began its partnership with two Toyota primary product partners, and has since expanded those relationships to include additional partners also located on campus.

In conjunction with earning tier one status, MetoKote was subsequently confirmed as a member of the Bluegrass Automotive Manufacturers Association otherwise known as BAMA. BAMA is a corporation made up of tier one Toyota suppliers who share a common vision with Toyota of delivering the highest quality vehicles at the lowest cost, with the shortest lead time.
