New Yokohama Tire Plant in Mexico Will Provide Additional Capacity to North American Market

SANTA ANA, CA. – (Mar. 18, 2024) – The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd. (YRC) has announced its intent to build a new consumer/light truck tire plant at the Alianza Industrial Park in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico after approval by the YRC board today.

“This is a clear signal that Yokohama is committed to the North American market,” said Jeff Barna, Yokohama Tire Corporation (YTC) president and CEO. “The increased production capabilities will supplement existing global capacity for tires destined for our region,” Barna said.
