YH America Inc. recently announced that its Sealant Division, a subsidiary of the Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd., is celebrating its 15th company anniversary. Founded in 1998, the division manufactures urethane adhesives and primers used for bonding stationary glass windshields, back glass, and side glass to automobiles, buses, and military vehicles.

YH America selected Versailles, Ky., as an ideal location to service major North American customers. The company has grown to a global operation with Sealant Division customers, ranging from OEMs such as Toyota and GM to Honda and Tier I suppliers. YH America reportedly remains committed to achieving a position of excellence by increasing customer satisfaction in quality, cost, delivery and service.

In addition to recognizing its 15th year in business, the division announced it will be doubling the size of its Kentucky manufacturing facility to meet the rapidly increasing demands of its customers. This $5.3 million investment will add 12,000 sq ft to the plant and will bring new jobs to the local area.

“We are thrilled about this expansion because it means we are successfully satisfying the evolving needs of our customers, and on a global scale,” said Al Harrington, Operations manager for the Sealant Division. “This positions us for future growth so that we can provide exceptional service and support to an even larger customer base.”
