About us


The “Yokohama Pneumatic Rubber Fender” was developed in 1958 based on a rubber company’s technology for automobile tyres and rubber aircraft fuel tanks. Progress in the development of such floating pneumatic rubber fenders is closely related to the progress and development of ship technology, and has to continuously cope with progressively larger oil tankers such as VLCC’s, ULCC’s, Q-max size gas carriers, bulk carriers and floating structures including FPSO, FLNG, FRSU. Floating pneumatic fenders are used worldwide for ship-to-ship (STS) transfer operations, terminals, and for all kinds of ships. Since its creation until today, more than 60,000 fenders have been supplied worldwide both for ship-to-ship and ship-todock operations serving our valuable customers. These fenders play a critical role in the safe operation of ship berthing and mooring.
