An easy-to-understand introduction to Yokohama Rubber for individual investors.
Tires still our main business
Tires are Yokohama Rubber’s main business, accounting for about 70% of Group sales. The remainder comes from our Multiple Business or MB Group, which sells hoses, conveyor belts, marine products, aerospace products, and other industrial products, and from sales of off-highway tires by the Alliance Tire Group (ATG), which we acquired in 2016.
We develop and make every category of tire
Yokohama Rubber develops and manufactures tires in all product categories, from general-use tires for passenger cars to winter cars for driving on icy and snowy roads, truck and bus tires, special large tires for construction machinery, and tires for motor sports.
We develop, manufacture, and sell off-highway tires
We have developed a highly specialized business in the development, manufacture, and sale of off-highway tires such as tires for agricultural, industrial, construction and forestry machinery as YOHT (Yokohama Off-Highway Tires) business.
