Section 6. Postwar Arrangements and Labor Disputes
Item 2. Company Reconstruction
Restoring of plant and equipment
As the repairing of the Koromo Plant from the air raid damage on August 14, 1945 progressed, the machinery and equipment, which had been removed to various locations, was returned, and preparations were made for the gradual restoring of the production systems.
The Temporary Reconstruction Office was established in April 1946, with Kiichiro Toyoda as its director to supervise the reconstruction. As well as restoring the machinery and equipment, the equipment was expanded for future use and the restoration of the plant was completed within one year, as planned. The plant recommenced regular production in March 1947 and the Temporary Reconstruction Office was closed.
