Toyota Motor Corp. said Wednesday it has completed the expansion of its research and development center in Belgium, part of its continuing localization of European design and engineering operations to better meet customer needs in Europe.

Capping off an effort that began in early 2004, the newly expanded Toyota Motor Europe SA/NV Technical Center in Zaventem near Brussels has nearly 2 1/2 times more floor space, greatly enlarging both its office and research facilities, the automaker said in a news release.
