Yokohama Doubles Tyre Production Capacity At Haryana Plant

Japanese tyre major Yokohama said that it has doubled manufacturing capacity at its Indian plant at Bahadurgarh in Haryana to 1.6 million tyres per year with the completion of second phase of expansion.

The company, which started operations in India in 2014 with an initial capacity of 7 lakh tyres per year, has also hired 200 more employees at the plant to meet requirements for additional capacity.

"In response to the increasing demand for Yokohama tyres in India and keeping in mind the projected market growth, we decided to double our domestic manufacturing capacities," Yokohama India Vice Chairman Anil Gupta said in a statement. "Incidentally it has happened at an opportune time as restrictions on import of tyres have been announced by the government," he added.

“This development also creates more job opportunities locally. Currently, the Bahadurgarh plant has over 500 employees and now with increased production, the number will go over 700, Gupta said. With the technological expertise from the parent company in Japan, Yokohama will now mass manufacture its extremely popular 'Geolandar A/T' along with 'Geolandar SUV' and 'BluEarth-RV02' tyres at this facility, added Anil Gupta.

Globally, Yokohama is an original equipment supplier to car manufacturers like Toyota, Honda, Audi, Mercedes Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, Suzuki.
