Toyo Tire Corporation has announced that its US tyre production subsidiary Toyo Tire North America Manufacturing Inc. (TNA) has manufactured its 50 millionth tyre.
The 50 millionth tyre was a Ridge Grappler for light trucks, sold under the Nitto brand, which has been highly lauded for its aggressive looks and on-road quietness.
TNA began operations as the group’s US tyre production site in December 2005. The total number of tyres manufactured reached 30 million in 2016 and 40 million in 2017.
TNA is currently in the fifth stage of its production capacity expansion that will boost annual production by 1.2 million tyres (converted for passenger vehicle tyres).
