IMC established in Pakistan

In Pakistan, Indus Motor Co. Ltd. (IMC), a joint venture between the Pakistan-based House of Habib and Toyota Tsusho Corporation, began complete-knockdown production (kit assembly) of the Corolla in 1993. Later, IMC began producing the Hilux in 1996 and the Cuore, which was manufactured on a mixed production line with Daihatsu vehicles, in 2000. In 2005, Corolla delivery was backlogged, so painting facilities were expanded and production capacity increased, and in 2008 a stamping plant was built.

In 2007, IMC achieved record production of 51,000 vehicles (including 36,000 Corollas), sold a total of approximately 40,000 Toyota vehicles, and acquired a 19 percent market share.
