Fujio Cho, a respected former leader of Georgetown's Toyota plant, visited the Bluegrass this weekend to celebrate the automaker's 25 years here. Cho led the plant from December 1988, less than six months after it began regular automotive assembly, to October 1994. He is now chairman of all of Toyota's operations. In the past quarter century, Toyota has opened 14 assembly plants in North America.
