|Japan-based Yokohama Rubber recently said it has started commercial production at its first manufacturing plant in India at Bahadurgarh, Haryana.|
Built with an investment of over Rs. 300 crore, the unit has an installed capacity of 2,000 tyres a day.
"Yokohama India started the first phase of commercial production at its first tyre manufacturing unit in India at HSIIDC Bahadurgarh Haryana," the company said in a statement.
With maximum production capacity of 2,000 tyres a day, the plant can be scaled up to three to four folds in the next phases of growth, it added.
The plant, inaugurated in February this year, will manufacture Yokohama Earth-1 tyres, especially designed for India, keeping the diverse road conditions in mind.
