Yokohama Corporation of North America’s (YCNA) consumer tire plant in Salem, Virginia, is set to reopen on June 1. Yokohama Tire Manufacturing Virginia (YTMV) was closed as a precautionary measure to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

As the factory reopens, YTMV has implemented several new safety procedures and protocols to ensure the health and welfare of all personnel upon their return. All of the new procedures are based on the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as from local authorities.

Several preventative measures also are in effect at all Yokohama facilities, including Yokohama Tire Manufacturing Mississippi, a commercial truck tire plant in West Point, Mississippi, which also recently reopened.
