One of the first actions has been the release of a video titled ‘Made in Valenciennes’. Made by TMMF, the video features key suppliers to the plant including ArcelorMittal. You can watch the video (in French) below.
The high-quality automotive steels used in the Yaris are supplied from four ArcelorMittal mills in France. ArcelorMittal Automotive Europe currently employs over 1,500 people in France, many of whom are dedicated to supporting TMMF.
“ArcelorMittal is proud to supply most of the steel used to manufacture the Yaris. There is a strong trust relationship between ArcelorMittal and TMMF. We are ready, and happy, to work with TMMF for another 20 years – and beyond.”

The Valenciennes plant continues to produce the Toyota Yaris. TMMF also announced it will also start to produce the new Yaris Cross at the plant later in 2021.
