Toyota Uganda Ltd was established in 2005 and is owned by Toyota Tsusho Corporation, which is in turn a subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation. As the exclusive Distributor of Toyota vehicles, it is the only company authorised to distribute and sell new Toyota Vehicles and Spare Parts in Uganda as well as offer Toyota Manufacturer’s Warranty. We also deal in Yamaha Motorcycles, Hino Truck, Case Tractors and Toyota Forklift. At Toyota Tsusho and Toyota Uganda, commitment to ANZEN (Safety) to create a Safe and Healthy work environment is Key.
Together with our Anzen philosophy and SWRW’s core objective, we believe it is not only our obligation but also our innate duty to be part of the collaboration to improve road safety on Africa’s roads and in particular, Uganda given the country drives largely Toyota vehicles. We also believe that the task to improve safety on Uganda roads is not simple for one entity to embark on alone, hence the desire to collaborate with other Corporates with a similar mind-set and common objective.
