June 9, 1987 marked the birth of a new U.S. Corporation. Founded through the careful guidance of its two principal companies, YUSA Corporation brought with its inception a level of state-of-the-art technology unparalleled in the rubber industry.
YUSA Corporation was a product of a joint venture agreement between the Yamashita Rubber Company of Iruma-gun, Saitama Prefecture, Japan and Lord Corporation, headquartered in Raleigh/Durham North Carolina. The venture enabled YUSA Corporation to take full advantage of the technical expertise of the Yamashita Rubber Company while at the same time gaining the recognition and endorsement of Lord Corporation’s highly regarded reputation in the international automotive and aerospace markets. Yamashita Rubber specializes in the production of control tubes, hoses, fuel lines, engine mountings, bushings, and other vibration dampening devices for the automotive industry. Established in 1953, Yamashita has operated manufacturing facilities in Kamisato & Ano Japan as well as Y-Tec, located in Srimahaphoe, Thailand. In recent years, Yamashita has added manufacturing facilities in Indonesia, Mexico, and India. In 1997, the Yamashita Rubber Company acquired full interest of YUSA Corporation by purchasing the outstanding shares held by its venture partner, Lord Corporation, bringing a close to a long and beneficial relationship.
YUSA Corporation, following in the footsteps of the Yamashita Rubber Company, has become an industry leader in the manufacture of rubber components, specializing in automotive mountings (conventional and hydro), bushings, dynamic dampers, and hoses and tubes. YUSA Corporation’s commitment to complete customer satisfaction has enabled the establishment of a customer base to include Honda of America Mfg., Honda of Canada Mfg., Mitsubishi Motors North America, General Motors Corporation, Ford Motor Company and numerous others in the North American Market.
