Nissan Navara first OE for Toyo Tire’s Malaysian plant & Thai subsidiary
The Toyo Open Country A25, produced at the company’s Toyo Tire Malaysia factory, has been selected as an original equipment fitment on models of the NP300 Navara pickup produced in Thailand. The 12th generation Navara will receive the Open Country A25 in size 255/70R16 111H. The tyres will be delivered through Toyo Tire (Thailand), the local sales subsidiary established in April 2013. This is the first occasion that a tyre produced at the Toyo Tire Malaysia plant has been adopted as an original equipment tyre, and the first time Toyo Tire (Thailand) has supplied tyres to an OEM customer.
The factory in Malaysia was completed in mid-2013 and manufactures tyres using Toyo Tire’s proprietary ATOM production system. ATOM allows for more precisely controlled manufacturing while reducing both lead time in the production process and the overall number of processes.
