Toyo Tyres Dual Anniversary
Toyo Tire & Rubber Co Ltd (parent company of Toyo Tyre & Rubber Australia Limited) celebrates their 60th anniversary of trade during 2005.
To commemorate this milestone, the company has created the 60th anniversary logo to symbolize its march of progress as a corporation, and its continuing drive to develop new and better products. Throughout the year President and CEO Yoshio Kataoka will deliver the 60th anniversary message at events across the world.
Toyo Tire & Rubber Co Ltd was established in Osaka Japan in 1945 and now has seven subsidiary companies across the world. The company has continued to exceed its reputation, being the first Japanese tyre manufacturer to establish an overseas sales subsidiary, based in the U.S.A. A Test Tyre Course was built in 1975 in Miyazaki prefecture, the first of its kind by a Japanese manufacturer, and built another in Saroma, Hokkaido for Toyo’s snow tyre range.
2005 holds even more importance for Toyo Tyre & Rubber Australia Limited, as we celebrate our 30th year in Australia. The company in Australia has come along way from its early days of specialising in OTR (earthmover) tyres. We now have an extensive range of tyre products, with a reputation for performance and quality.
Toyo Tyre & Rubber Australia Limited has invested back into Australia, by developing a rubber mixing plant at Moorebank (NSW) and manufacturing plants for automotive parts at Enfield (NSW) and Sunshine (VIC). Ensuring Toyo is on the leading edge of Technology, we have invested heavily with substantial plant and technical upgrades for the rubber mixing facility during its current relocation to Minto (NSW).
During 1992, Toyo Tyre & Rubber Australia Limited’s investment into Australia continued, with a new plant at Sunshine Melbourne. This plant produces polyurethane instrumental panel for vehicle companies such as Toyota and Mitsubishi.
Toyo Tire & Rubber Co Ltd and Toyo Tyre & Rubber Australia Limited would like to thank all our partners and customers, for their assistance in helping Toyo reach these milestones. We look forward to a great future.
