Yokohama Tire Moves Western Distribution Center | Construction News

Yokohama Tire Corporation (YTC) will move its Western Region Distribution center from its 380,000-sq.-ft. warehouse in Fullerton, Calif., to a newly constructed 658,000-sq.-ft. facility in Chino, Calif., about 22 miles away. The company expects to complete the move late this year.

“We prospered in Fullerton for almost three decades and appreciate all the support the community gave us,” said Tom Masuguchi, YTC’s chief strategy officer. “The new western region distribution center in Chino ushers in a new era for Yokohama, not only in terms of growth, but also strategy, and it’s only the beginning” said Masuguchi.

“In addition to infrastructure advantages, we will be breaking ground with new processes for servicing our customers, filling orders, and distributing inventory throughout our four distribution centers in the country. The new facility will be the cornerstone of the future of our U.S. distribution network.”

The new western region distribution center, located at 16388 Fern Avenue in San Bernardino County, is designed to hold more than twice the capacity of the existing warehouse and bring together both full-time and contract labor. It will be used to distribute Yokohama’s products consisting of passenger car/truck, commercial truck, and off-the-road (OTR) tires.

Yokohama Tire Corporation is the North American manufacturing and marketing arm of The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., Tokyo, Japan, a global manufacturer and seller of premium tires since 1917.
