Toyota announced earlier this week (April 29) it was moving its headquarters from California to Texas and would establish them in Plano.

This marks the second motor company to announce it would establish new headquarters in Collin County. On April 28, China-based Hisun Motors Corporation, a leading maker of utility-terrain vehicles and all-terrain vehicles, has selected McKinney as the new site for the company’s North American headquarters.

Texas State Senator Ken Paxton (Dist. 8) released this statement regarding Toyota’s move:

"Toyota's decision to relocate its North American Headquarters to Plano, Texas exemplifies the ongoing efforts made by our state and the North Texas region to promote the nation's strongest business climate. I am excited to welcome Toyota and its employees to our community and look forward to collaborating with them as we continue to grow our state's economy and provide additional employment opportunities for Texans."

The mayors of the two cities were excited with the news.

Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere: “Today is a great day in the state of Texas, a terrific day for Collin County and the DFW region, and a fantastic day for the city of Plano.”

McKinney Mayor Brian Loughmiller: “It is very exciting to have another industry-leading company choose McKinney. McKinney’s focus on international business recruitment is reflected in the diverse base of businesses in our community. We are thrilled to welcome Hisun to prosper in McKinney.”
