Message from the President
Yokohama Rubber (Thailand) Co., Ltd. Was established in 1996 in the Eastern Seaboard Industrial Estate, located 100 km southeast of Suvarnabhumi International Airport, a metropolitan airport in Thailand that has been in operation for 26 years.
Around the Industrial Estate, pineapple, mango and durian fields are scattered, indigenous products of Thailand, and it is a place of a beautiful natural environment.
Now, Yokohama Rubber (Thailand) Co., Ltd. manufactures high-pressure hoses for construction machines, hydraulic hose pipes and Teflon hose pipes for automobiles and sells to mainly Thailand and ASEAN countries and India. In particular, in Thailand, we maintain a large share of high-pressure hoses for construction machines.
As the surroundings of the Industrial Estate comprise an agricultural area, the Industrial Estate is required to have stricter standards for air and water quality than national standards and the Plant meets these standards. For maintaining safety, environment and quality, Yokohama Rubber (Thailand) Co., Ltd. holds ISO 45001, ISO 14001, ISO 9001,and IATF 16949 certifications and continues to acquire them.
Yokohama Rubber (Thailand) Co., Ltd. has translated into Thai materials that were originally developed for Yokohama Rubber (YRC) employees related to quality fraud. All employees have received training on the prevention of quality fraud. And we have thoroughly implemented measures to prevent fraud.
Our company regulations set out the age at which recruitment of labor and work are possible. We use these provisions within the company regulations to educate our employees.
As of March 2022, we have 78 employees (2 Japanese expatriates and 76 Thai employees). By gender, there are 45 males and 33 females.
One person (female) also has a handicap.
There is a mechanism that enables workers to place complaints and suggestions in the “President’s suggestion box.” Only the president can browse this, and so enables employees to make proposals to the president directly.
Education and Training
In following the annual plan, at the Plant evacuation training has been conducted in preparation for if a disaster should occur.
Employees also carry out firefighting drills at a facility located within the Eastern Seaboard Industrial Estate.
An environment meeting is held once a month where matters are followed up regarding the progress of activities. One participant is drawn from each workplace, and they act as a member of the environment meeting.

Fair Operating Practices
To maintain Fair Operating Practices, the Yokohama Rubber Code of Conduct was translated into Thai and distributed to all employees.
Using the English language version of the summary that was published by CSR, following the education of the company’s Thai management class staff, steps are being taken to thoroughly disseminate the necessary information within each workplace.
We hold in-house quality improvement meetings once a month.
Further, we share problems at the monthly management meeting, and discuss and determine methods for improvement.
Community Involvement and Development
Every year, we visited and donated to facilities with sick or disabled children, but since we were unable to visit them for COVID-19, we made donations to the local government instead.
We provided plastic pallets and cardboard for cots to be used in COVID-19 isolation facilities.
