History of Toyo tyres
Toyo Tires has stood for innovation, quality, performance, and excellent service for over 72 years, including 36 years in Europe. Combined, the Toyo group of companies has development, manufacturing, testing, distribution, and marketing operations throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Oceania.
As a result, Toyo Tires has built a solid reputation around the world. And who knows tyres better than the very people who manufacture and sell them every day? In Europe, Toyo Tires have been recommended in numerous magazine tests while in the United States, Toyo Tires has been named #1 Overall Brand by North American tyre dealers an unprecedented seven times since 2000.
The vision to manufacture great tyres began in August 1945, when the founding president, Mr. Rikimatsu Tomihisa, established the Toyo Tire & Rubber Co, Ltd. in Japan.
In 1975, Toyo Reifen GmbH was established in Germany, the first Toyo Tires European company. This was followed by Toyo Tyre UK in 1981 and Toyo Banden B.V in the Netherlands in 1989.
In 2005, Toyo Tire Europe was established as the headquarters of Toyo in Europe and parent to Toyo Tyre (UK) Ltd, Toyo Tire Benelux B.V and Toyo Tire Italia Spa. Toyo Tire Europe became responsible for all sales and marketing across Europe to importers and subsidiaries.
In 2008, Toyo Tire RUS was established in Moscow and in 2014, Toyo Tire Deutschland GmbH was also established to manage sales and marketing in Germany and Austria.
To meet the demands of consumers—and set a few trends in the process—Toyo Tires has also become a leader in fitments and dynamic tyre applications.
During the tuning market expansion in the early 21st century, Toyo Tires responded with a low profile, large rim diameter high-performance tyres. The highly successful Proxes T1S was followed by the Proxes T1R, Proxes T1 Sport and 2017 sees the introduction of the Proxes Sport. The new tyre provides “A” grade wet grip across the entire range while still providing exhilarating cornering and braking for enthusiastic drivers.
