FULLERTON, Cali. – Yokohama Tire Corporation announced today that it will be moving its western distribution centre currently located in Fullerton, California to Chino, California, about 22 miles away.
The new location is located at 16388 Fern Avenue and was designed to hold more than twice the capacity of the old warehouse, coming in at 658,000 square feet.
“We prospered in Fullerton for almost three decades and appreciate all the support the community gave us,” said Tom Masuguchi, YTC’s chief strategy officer. “The new Western Region Distribution Center in Chino ushers in a new era for Yokohama, not only in terms of growth, but also strategy, and it’s only the beginning. In addition to infrastructure advantages, we will be breaking ground with new processes for servicing our customers, filling orders, and distributing inventory throughout our four distribution centers in the country. The new facility will be the cornerstone of the future of our US distribution network.”
The move is set to be completed by the end of the year.
