The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., has reported a 1.3 per cent increase in net sales, to 123.1 billion yen (£582.1 million), in the three months ended June 30, the first quarter of the 2009 fiscal year. This result came on the back of, the company explained, continuing Tire Group expansion that more than offset lower sales in the Multiple Business Group.
