Toyo establishes Mexican subsidiary
Toyo Tire & Rubber reports it has expanded its automotive operations in the Americas with the establishment of Toyo Automotive Parts De Mexico S.A. DE C.V. The subsidiary specialises in automotive anti-vibration products and began operation in January. The Japanese company says the opening of Toyo Automotive Parts De Mexico will enable it to bolster sales of automotive anti-vibration rubber products in the global market through the creation of an optimal supply structure in Mexico, a location it expects will continue to grow as a global production and export base for motor vehicles.
Automotive anti-vibration rubber is a core product for Toyo Tires’ automotive parts business. Currently, in addition to three facilities in Japan, the company has four overseas production facilities.
