Yokohama has completed the acquisition of Aichi Tire Industry. In Yokohama’s ongoing Phase IV (2015–2017) of its medium-term management plan, Grand Design 100, the tire maker places an emphasis on expanding its business in commercial tires.
Measures for achieving this strategic aim have included the opening in October 2015 of a plant in Mississippi in the USA for producing truck and bus tires, and the acquisition of Alliance Tire Group (ATG) in July 2016.
