History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Yokohama Rubber Company page on 31 July 2019, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Yokohama Rubber Company, Limited (横浜ゴム株式会社 Yokohama Gomu Kabushiki-gaisha) is a tire company based in Tokyo, Japan. The company was founded and started Oct 13, 1917 in a joint venture between Yokohama Cable Manufacturing and B.F. Goodrich. In 1969 the company expanded to the United States as Yokohama Tire Corporation. The Aspec A300 was the driving force behind its tremendous rise. Branding, especially in Japan, will often use "ADVAN" instead of Yokohama. ADVAN wheels and tires have a strong presence in the aftermarket scene worldwide.

The company has two manufacturing facilities in the United States: one in Salem, Virginia, and another in West Point, Mississippi.
