Tokyo - The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., announced today that its key location producing tires for passenger cars, trucks and buses in Thailand - Yokohama Tire Manufacturing (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (TRYT) obtained an international standard certification for energy management systems ISO50001 in August. In September, TRYT also obtained OHSAS (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) 18001 certification.

Started in June 2011, ISO50001 is a new certification standard and TRYT was the first company in the Yokohama Rubber Group to obtain it. It requires an organization to establish and enhance energy efficiency systems and processes. TRYT commenced an active approach towards obtaining that certification since April 2010.
