Yokohama Tire is relocating its corporate headquarters to a new facility in November to accommodate business growth. The company will be moving from its old headquarters in Fullerton, Calif., to nearby Santa Ana.
Yokohama signed a 10-year lease for the new 57,000-square-foot facility and will be occupying two-and-a-half floors in a high-tech, nine-floor office complex near John Wayne Airport.
“Unlike other companies that moved out of the state, we wanted to stay in California,” said Tom Masuguchi, chief strategy officer at Yokohama. “The Santa Ana location provided the best match for all our requirements now and in the future as we expand our business even further.”
Yokohama had been in Fullerton for 28 years. This change comes on the heels of another announcement that Yokohama’s distribution center would be relocating from Fullerton to a larger facility 22 miles east in Chino.
Yokohama Tire is the North American sales and marketing arm of the Japan-based Yokohama Rubber, a global tire manufacturing and sales company.
