Commercial - About Us


For over 90 years, Yokohama has been a world leader in the development of outstanding tyre technology and designs, giving drivers better control and safety 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.

Commercial fleets today need more distance, greater retreadability, longer even wear and less maintenance costs per kilometre from their tyres. Given the extreme demands of today's transport industry, continuous innovation in tyre technology is essential. Yokohama's technology helps you get the most out of your tyre investment.

Yokohama's commitment to the environment, through activities such as its “Forever Forest” project, carry all the way through energy efficient manufacturing plants to a range of products designed and built to save fuel in a range of demanding applications.

Yokohama's flagship Z.environment tyre line incorporates optimum tread designs, compounds and casing designs to create a tyre that has longer first tread life, longer casing life for greater retreadability and low rolling resistance.

These features result in reduced material consumption, reduced pollution and contribute to the health of our environment.
