Toyo Tire North America Manufacturing, Inc. has received ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System Standards certification by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance of Houston, Tex. Located in White, Georgia, the 900,000-square-foot facility was established in June 2004 and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Toyo Tire Holdings of Americas Inc. It is responsible for production of both Toyo and Nitto tire brands. The ISO 9001:2000 certification means that the facility meets internationally recognized quality standards for the production of tires.
