Company History


Yokohama Tire Philippines, Inc. was then vested in the industrial site of Mabalacat, Pampanga, the Clark Special Economic Zone. Strategically located, Clark is equipped with an international airport, near Subic port area as well as few hours on the way to the capital city of Philippines which is Manila through North Luzon Expressway.

Choosing Filipinos to be in the combat zone of workmanship, Yokohama believes in our skills and as they say, combining Japanese high technology with Filipino craftsmanship is a superb distinction.

Filipinos were then sent to Japan, in where the head plant of YRC is located, to undergo training on producing quality pneumatic radial tires for passenger vehicles. A couple of years after, with right set of skills, YTPI is ready to begin the production.

At present, YTPI is the only rubber company that operates here in the Philippines.
The first ever tire was then released and millions follow thereafter. At present, 95% of which is being exported worldwide while only 5% is for the local market.

Moving Forward

Auspiciously, in the last quarter of 2014, Yokohama drives fully the rights as it was able to acquire hundred percent of the proprietorship. And today, YTPI’s commitment to global industry is to deliver an average of 22,000 tires per day. Another 15, 000 will be on production once the west plant is ready to fulfill the daily requirement, hopefully by 2017.

Since it started, YTPI has been marking the exporting standard by  living through its vision of: 
“We will be number 1.”

And being number 1, among Yokohama’s plant global, could be achieved through our sense of duty of satisfying the customers’ needs and high standards by delivering the best tires while at the same time, never leaving behind our compassion for the environment and responsibility to a sustainable community.

In claiming this, YTPI breathes up to the core values: 
“Dedication, Sincerity and Excellence”


We continue to develop the skills and potentials of our people and employ our machines with maximum efficiency and productivity. Guided by these philosophies, we are confident we will succeed and will contribute to the well-being of our stakeholders and to the economic development of the country
