Toyota has announced it will open a new parts depot in the Czech Republic.

Located in Krupka, in the north-west, the Toyota Parts Centre Czech Republic (TPCCZ) will be 12,000m2 in size and begin operations in May 2007 with 75 employees. An estimated €10 million will be invested in the facility and, depending on market growth, TPCCZ may be expanded further.

TPCCZ will distribute parts and accessories to about 250 retailers in the Czech Republic and eastern Germany. It will be Toyota's 14th European parts depot.
