Jill Gafner

Jill Gafner Training and Development Manager

2 years with Toyoda Gosei
Troy, Michigan, USA

"Toyoda Gosei leadership worked closely with me when I first joined the team. Because I am responsible for teaching over 10,000 people in the Americas, it was imperative that my skills and knowledge of the TG way were, and continue to be solid. I can honestly say that the training given to me by my Japanese colleagues has made me more confident than I have ever been in my career. TG makes everyone feel valued, and I’m proud to work here."

Travis Langton

Travis Langton Weatherstrip Engineer

5 years with Toyoda Gosei
Troy, Michigan, USA

"When I learned about the weatherstrip engineer position at Toyoda Gosei, I was immediately interested in the opportunity because of the growth potential for my career. Weatherstrips are a commodity that interface with so many other parts, so I have learned a lot about vehicles as a whole. As further training, I was offered an opportunity to relocate to Japan for 6 months to learn from my colleagues at our global headquarters. I made some very strong relationships with my Japanese coworkers and have a better understanding of the culture and company. Toyoda Gosei values the importance of succeeding as a group and acknowledging everyone’s effort."

There is always something new you can learn at this company and that is what I like most. TG always wants to improve and implement Kaizens. As a supervisor, I am encouraged to  listen to my people, get their input, and then make improvements that better the company."
