“These are two very significant achievements for Yokohama, particularly in the U.S.,” said Tetsuro (Tex) Murakami, YTMV president. “The plant helped establish our brand by providing a strategic manufacturing facility in the United States to serve both the OEM and replacement markets. Twenty five years later, the 80th million tire – an Avid Ascend with Yokohama’s signature technology, orange oil – rolled off the line. The accomplishments are a testament to the dedication and hard work of our employees.”

The facility has also lead Yokohama’s environmental achievements by becoming a zero-waste-to-landfill operation in November.
