Yokohama relocating Western Region distribution center

July 24, 2014

Yokohama Tire Corp. is relocating its Western Region distribution center to a larger facility in Chino, CA. The move is expected to be completed late this year.

The new 658,000-sq.-ft. facility is almost twice as large of the current one, a 380,000-sq.-ft. facility 22 mi. away in Fullerton, CA.

“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 facility will be used to distribute Yokohama’s products consisting of passenger car/truck, commercial truck and OTR (Off-the-Road) tires.
