After WW2 Japan was in an economic crisis which continued until 1949 when the company obtained a loan from several banks. In June 1950 the company only produced 300 trucks and management announced layoffs and wage reductions and in response, the union went on strike which last for two months. While the strike did eventually end and layoffs and wage reductions did occur the union stipulated that the president Kiichiro Toyoda must resign. Kiichiro Toyoda resigned from his company and the company then came under the leadership of Taizo Ishida CEO of Toyoda Automatic Loom. In 1950 a separate sales company Toyota Motor Sales Co was established (lasted until 1982). In 1956 the Toyota dealership chain was established.

Toyota positioned itself in the American auto market and defined its organizational strategy as high quality, innovative engineering and producing some of the safest auto mobiles on the road, and in one fell swoop, the integrity and quality of their vehicles were not only brought into question, but many consumers looked elsewhere for their automotive needs. The Toyota group and its subsidiaries has had a prominence in Japan for years, but the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC) embargo of 1973 allowed Japan to bring its kaizen work ethic to the US and begin to gain an automotive presence that allowed Toyota to compete with America’s big three: Ford, GM and Chrysler. The big three controlled the market up until this point and it would take some time but by 1980 Toyota was the fourth leading manufacturer in the US and poised to gain ground and by 2008 Toyota, Honda and Nissan made prolific jumps with around 32% of the market share. Unfortunately the economic recession slowed all manufacturers’ growth but trends such as forty-three-year-old Hyundai has surpassed 107 year-old Ford in global sells would mark the end of the big three reigns, with GM and Chrysler taking part in the controversial automotive bailout in 2009. This also harkened back to the belief those automakers had little vigilance on the market and their long term control left them vulnerable to better organizational strategies. Market growth in the US had become stagnant by 2008 so
