HISTORY

Yokohama Tire (Canada) Inc. is a branch of the North American group, derived from the Tokyo, Japan-based Global Yokohama Rubber Co (YRC). This coming year, we will be celebrating 100 years of innovation, technology and leadership in this industry. We have been a world leader in the development of outstanding tire design and engineering, providing driver’s superior control and versatility on the road. Since its establishment in 1917, we have devoted ourselves to advancing the leading edge of the industry. Servicing an extensive sales network throughout Canada, we revel in our brand, the people who represent it and the heritage behind it. The company's complete product line includes tires for high-performance, light truck, passenger car, commercial truck and bus, and off-the-road mining and construction applications

We care about the Environment

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.
