Established 36 years ago in Europe, the brand is part of a conglomerate that boasts a global footprint, with operations straddling the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Oceania.
The company’s journey commenced in August 1945 with the vision of its founding president, Mr. Rikimatsu Tomihisa. The inception of Toyo Tire & Rubber Co., Ltd. in Japan marked the beginning of an era of excellence and innovation. The expansion into Europe began with the establishment of Toyo Reifen GmbH in Germany in 1975, followed by Toyo Tyre UK in 1981, and Toyo Banden B.V in the Netherlands in 1989.
2005 saw the establishment of Toyo Tire Europe, the brand’s European headquarters, overseeing all sales and marketing initiatives across the continent. The Moscow-based Toyo Tire RUS was inaugurated in 2008, and six years later, Toyo Tire Deutschland GmbH was set up to streamline sales and marketing in Germany and Austria.
Toyo Tyres has remained at the forefront of the tyre industry, offering products that combine aesthetic appeal with functional efficiency. The early 21st century’s tuning market expansion was met with innovative high-performance tyres like the Proxes T1S, Proxes T1R, and Proxes T1 Sport, leading to the unveiling of the Proxes Sport in 2017, acclaimed for its ‘A’ grade wet grip and superior cornering and braking.
