Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. (TEMA) was an automobile manufacturing and research and development company owned by Toyota Motor Company. It is the result of a merger of Toyota Motor Manufacturing North America (TMMNA) and Toyota Technical Center, U.S.A. (TTC) in April 2006, and has its headquarters at the former TMMNA headquarters in Erlanger, Kentucky. In 2014 TEMA announced that it would fold operations into TMNA and move its headquarters to Plano, Texas.


Previously the CEO was based in Torrance, California in the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area. In 2013 the CEO, Osamu "Simon" Nagata, stated that he will begin working in the Toyota Technical Center in York Charter Township, Michigan, near Saline. Nagata was scheduled to move his residence to Novi in Metro Detroit, where he had purchased a house.[1]
