YIPHZ was founded in January 2015 through the merger of Yokohama Hoses &Coupling (Hangzhou) Co., Ltd. (YHCC) (a hose manufacturer) and Yokohama Hamatite (Hangzhou) Co., Ltd. (YHHC) (an adhesives and sealants manufacturer).
YIPHZ is mainly engaged in supplying hydraulic hose to the construction machinery market, and Hamatite automotive adhesive to the car manufacturer market.
