New United Motor Manufacturing Incorporated (NUMMI) was an auto manufacturing plant in Fremont, California, operated jointly by Toyota and General Motors from 1984 until 2010. GM had operated the plant at Fremont from 1960 where the clashes between management and union workers resulted in the plant’s closure in 1982. When it reopened as a joint venture between Toyota and GM, Japanese management techniques had been studied and implemented to emphasize collaboration and teamwork between workers and management. The objects collected from NUMMI included donations from Judy Weaver (engineering department secretary) and Rick Madrid (quality control), who submitted winning essays on the concept of teamwork.
Judy Weaver’s employee identification badge is contained in a plastic sleeve that also holds pins representing projects, awards, or milestones achieved during Weaver’s work at the NUMMI plant.
