The Yokohama Rubber Co.’s United Kingdom tire sales subsidiary Yokohama H.P.T. Ltd. (YHPT) was honored with the Tyre Manufacturer of the Year award at the 2016 TyreSafe Awards.
YHPT received the award in recognition for its tire safety campaign with the English Premier League’s Chelsea Football Club in October 2016, which is TyreSafe’s annual Tyre Safety Month.
During the campaign, members of the Chelsea FC Ladies team highlighted the importance of tire safety checks in a special video on the stadium’s main screen at three Chelsea FC matches at its home stadium at Stamford Bridge.
