HOW IT'S MADE TOUR
How does SAS create the most comfortable shoes in the world? Come and see first-hand where our shoes begin with a factory tour. Each pair of shoes can go through up to 100 different steps, performed by approximately 80 different pairs of skilled hands, before they are declared SAS quality.
Complete your Toyota experience by taking the plant tour. You will hear and see just what goes into the manufacturing of the Toyota Tundra and Tacoma as they roll off the line each day. Best of all – you will tour this massive plant riding in a tram.
