The Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd. is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of rubber products, offering an extensive range of tire, rubber and adhesive products. Established in 1917, Yokohama Rubber has expanded its worldwide business scope with a lineup of high-technology products meeting customer needs in the fields of automobiles, civil engineering, construction, marine engineering, aerospace and sporting goods.
Yokohama Rubber employs 13,500 people worldwide.
Today, Yokohama is reinforcing its global structure through state-of-the-art production centers in Japan, other Asian countries and North America, and through a sales network covering these areas and Europe.
For over 90 years, Yokohama has been a world leader in the development of outstanding tire designs and technology, giving drivers better control on the road. Since its establishment in 1917, we have devoted ourselves to advancing the leading edge of the industry. We were the first Japanese tire manufacturer to be granted ISO9001 certification in recognition of a quality-assurance model-company in design, development, manufacture installation, and related services.
Yokohama also takes its responsibilities to the environment very seriously. Among our many ongoing initiatives, we have eliminated the use of CFCs and trichloroethane in the manufacturing process, and have switched from heavy oil to natural gas to reduce CO2 emissions and save energy.
Driven by the needs of people, Yokohama continues to respond with environmentally-compatible solutions engineered to outperform, whatever the performance need.
