Toyo Tire to enhance capacity of its USA plant

Toyo Tire to enhance capacity of its USA plant

Toyo Tire will strengthen the production capacity at its Toyo Tire North America Manufacturing Inc. (TNA)

Taking into consideration “Mid-term ‘17”, the four-year medium-term business plan that started in 2017, Toyo is moving its business forward by touting several topics, such as strengthening product strength and further strengthening the systems geared toward increasing sales in the North American market, optimising the product mix to reflect market trends, improving its development and technical capabilities to supply products that surprise, reinforcing the strength of its brand, and building an efficient supply system.

In the North American market, pickup truck and large SUV sales are currently firm, and Toyo has a competitive advantage with regard to the highly creative large-diameter tires mounted on these kinds of vehicles. A steady increase in the demand and supply capacity of this type of tire is expected to continue even in 2020 and beyond. With these market conditions, Toyo decided to install production equipment in the remaining half of the space in new 5th phase building at TNA that was expanded at the end of last year in order to further strengthen production capacity.

TNA primarily manufactures and sells light-truck tyres and other large-diameter tires for pickup trucks and SUVs for the North American market. A highly automated and proprietary production system, Advanced Tire Operation Module (A.T.O.M.), is used in the entire facility. TNA has been increasing its production capacity in multiple steps over four phases to meet the sharp increase in demand for light-truck tires in the North American market. In the fall of 2016, TNA became the TOYO TIRES Group’s largest tire manufacturing facility with an annual production capacity of 11.5 million tyres (calculated for passenger car tyres). TNA manufactured its 50 millionth tire in January 2019.
