Yokohama Tire Canada has a long history in Canada since being established in 1983 and is a proud member of the Yokohama group of companies. With offices and employees spread across a vast multi-lingual country we strive to reliably deliver products that are in demand by our customers and to provide after-sales service, promotion, and support to enhance the customer experience and grow the Yokohama brand. As Society becomes more aware of (ESG) Environmental, Social, and Governance issues and has higher expectations of companies, Yokohama Tire Canada is committed to being a good socially responsible corporate citizen by respecting all local laws and people we deal with, supporting communities we operate in, and helping the environment.
The business operations of Yokohama Tire Canada are managed by an Executive Committee which is overseen by a Board of Directors and we are a part of (YCNA) Yokohama Corporation of North America.
