Speech: Launch of the new Toyota Corolla

first_imgHiroki Nakajima, Ambassador, ladies and gentlemen, it is a huge honour and a pleasure to be here to celebrate this success. Dr van Zyl referred to the decision to invest in TNGA. That was a thrilling moment to have that vote of confidence in the future, building on the success of over a quarter of a century of achievements here in Derbyshire.But it is a particular pleasure to be able to meet team members on the line to see it now going into production and making cars that will be sold not just in this country but around the world. And it is fitting that you have invited what I like to think of as team Toyota here from the plant, from the local community and right across the country and we are all delighted at your success and are determined to make sure it can power forward in the future.Now the Corolla of course is a historic car. This is a historic moment for a historic car. When it was launched in 1966, it was launched with these words, that it was “The most wanted car by the market – presented to the world by bringing together the essence of Toyota’s technology”. And what we see today through this investment is that those values and those traditions continue.Right from the outset, it was the Corolla that brought sports car technology to the school run if I can put it that way. It was the first family car with front brake discs. It was the first Japanese car with a floor-mounted gear lever. And the first Japanese car with a 4-speed fully-synchronised manual transmission. Britons, when it was first launched, could own a piece of the future, and this is as true now as it was then.The Corolla that we are celebrating today is a fitting heir to this tradition of continuing innovation. And as we move into the era of clean technology, the facts that the hybrid technology pioneered by Toyota is being produced here in Derbyshire, and of course in Deeside in North Wales, is a tremendous source of pride to all of us in the United Kingdom.2,600 people work here, members of Toyota work force here onsite and 600 more in Deeside. But of course, we know that beyond the factory gates so many partners are part of this success and I know that many of them are represented here today. I just wanted to refer to and pay tribute to those who may not have the Toyota brand but are very much part of that success. Adient who supply seats for the vehicles just down the road in Burton-Upon-Trent. I think Garry Linnett is here from Aisin who produce panoramic car roofs. This fantastic innovation that’s going to be appreciated for those endless summer days that we look forward to in the UK.Kevin Schofield, I think is here from Futaba who produces the weld and sub-assembly parts, and seeing all of these parts come in at short notice, and seeing them so brilliantly deployed in these vehicles, is a real demonstration of the power of the model that Toyota has pioneered and has taught much of the rest of British manufacturing.So, this has always been a successful partnership. We have drawn and learnt much from Toyota’s presence here. We think this has been a successful joint-collaboration over the years and we are thrilled that it is moving to the next stage.Dr van Zyl reflected the importance of having those conditions that have been central to success. Having a skilled, dedicated and motivated workforce that we have in abundance here and you always will. But also, to make sure we recognise the importance of public policy that is supportive and backs investments like this. We should be able to continue to trade without introducing any of those frictions that would disrupt what is a perfect process that has been optimised here.I hear that very strongly. Over the years, the evidence that has been presented by Toyota and other firms within the advanced manufacturing sector in the UK has been instrumental in determining the kind of relationship that we want.In these days ahead, I will continue to be a strong advocate for that kind of relationship which has been so crucial to our success.Toyota has done the country a service, in bringing to life the benefits and the actuality of just-in-time production of advanced manufacturing and the benefits that there are to all. We are very grateful for that and we give this commitment; we will always back you, we will always celebrate your success, and we will always listen to you, and to act on what you need to prosper in the future.Today’s a fantastic day of celebration. It is a huge honour to have been asked to be part of it. Thank you very much indeed for inviting me. I’d like to hand over to the ambassador.last_img read more

Balanced scoring paces Syracuse to three blowout wins

first_img Published on February 20, 2017 at 9:56 pm Contact Kaci: klwasile@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+ With 10 seconds on the clock against Binghamton, freshman Bella Recchion had the ball in her stick. As the clock ticked down, she wound her stick back and shot the ball. It flew past the goalie and hit the back of the net as the final buzzer echoed through the Carrier Dome.In the final three seconds, Recchion snagged her first career goal.Recchion was one of four players to have their first goal of the season for No. 5 Syracuse (3-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) against Binghamton. In the first three games, 17 different players were a part of SU’s 52 goals scored. It’s that balanced, diversified attack that’s propelled Syracuse to three blowout wins thus far in 2017.Head coach Gary Gait has let every player see the field at some point this season. Twenty-nine players saw the action in all three games, and 38 have made at least two appearances. With a majority of players getting field time, there are a lot of opportunities for more than just the top scorers to find the net.“We always like to try and play everybody so when we can we give them the opportunity to learn from it. It’s valuable experience,” Gait said. “It’s part of the reason why I think you saw so many players that have limited experience step up on that field last weekend.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen SU was down 2-1 in the season opener against Boston College, Devon Parker ran through a group of Boston College defenders and flipped the ball to Riley Donahue. Donahue, on the left side of the net, took aim and tied the game at 2-2.Donahue’s goal was the first of her 14 points (seven goals, seven assists) so far this season. She is one of four players to have eight or more points after the first three games of the season. Nicole Levy (10), Emily Hawryschuk (eight) and Mary Rahal (eight) round out the top four.“Our team is so great and we have so many people who have filled in and mixed in with our team,” Donahue said. “Believing in each and every person is just what’s going to work for us.”Syracuse lost last year’s key scorers, Kayla Treanor and Halle Majorana. With the two impact players in the lineup last season, it took Syracuse three games and 14 minutes and 27 seconds of a fourth game to reach the 52 goals SU has so far in the season.In the first 52 goals of last season, there were four girls with more than eight points, similar to this season. The difference between last season and this season is that 11 players this season have four or more points. Last season, there were only seven.“We’ve got a lot of new players actually playing,” redshirt junior midfielder Taylor Gait said, “so we’ve really worked on our chemistry for each line.”Out of the 17 players who has contributed a point, Kerry Defliese is the only one without a goal. She racked up an assist late in first half of the Binghamton game. Over the first three games, seven different players scored their first ever goal for the Orange.“We’re going to continue kind of with that system,” Gary Gait said, “of giving kids time, giving them experience so that when it’s their turn to step up, they’re ready to go.” Commentslast_img read more
