An easy-to-understand introduction to Yokohama Rubber for individual investors.
Tires still our main business
Tires are Yokohama Rubber’s main business, accounting for about 90% of Group sales. The remainder comes from our Multiple Business, or MB Group, which sells hoses, conveyor belts, marine products, aerospace products, and other industrial products. YOHT, formerly the Alliance Tire Group (ATG), which manufactures and sells off-highway tires, was merged into the Tires segment in 2022.
We develop and make every category of tire
Yokohama Rubber develops, manufactures, and sells tires in all product categories, from general-use tires for passenger cars to winter tires for driving on icy and snowy roads; truck and bus tires; off-highway tires (OHT) for agricultural machinery, construction machinery, industrial machinery, and forestry machinery; and various tires used in a wide range of motor sports.
