About KTPO

The KUKA Toledo Production Operations (KTPO), a wholly owned subsidiary of KUKA Systems North America LLC, has built all of the body-in-white Jeep® Wranglers sold in the world – both the classic two-door and the four-door Wrangler Unlimited models – since it began operations in 2006. Since 2019 it produces the body-in-white of the Jeep® Gladiator. Body-in-white is the first shop in the manufacturing process that welds the vehicle together.

In designing and equipping KTPO, KUKA Systems created a showcase for its expertise in welding, joining technologies and systems integration.
KTPO produces the unpainted vehicle body - (828 jobs per day), or one every 77 seconds - which is mated to the chassis frame during final assembly. Assembling the body-in-white involves welding the underbody, windshield and closures together, which enables KUKA Systems’ to showcase its best-in-class, automated metal joining technologies developed primarily for customers in the automotive sector and in use in assembly plants worldwide.

Day in, day out, KTPO underscores how KUKA Systems can implement a state-of-the-art body shop that meets the most demanding benchmarks for quality and efficiency in the automotive industry worldwide
