Our History

Tai Kwong Yokohama was founded in 1967 when the business humbly revolved around the reconditioning of used automotive starter batteries. Today, YOKOHAMA Industries Berhad boasts the nation’s largest and most advanced integrated battery manufacturing facility, self-sufficiency and security in raw material supply via its lead and polypropylene reclamation plant, one of the finest electrochemical research centres in the region, and more recently, official recognition as the Best Brand in Automotive Batteries.

Yokohama Batteries’ products are designed for promising quality for all types of vehicles, from passenger vehicles such as sedans, continental vehicles and more, to commercial vehicles like trucks, vans, lorries etc. They have two types of batteries: MF and conventional. MF batteries are a rising trend due to the convenience factor. Yokohama Batteries GOLD Series symbolizes the ‘premium’ factor from the box, which is gold. For all their printed packaging, the Yokohama logo is highlighted to emphasize brand recognition. The ‘Y’ symbol is instantly recognizable, even at a distance. The battery casing for Yokohama Batteries is designed to prevent imitation, and the overall structure is specially-made for tropical climates, especially Malaysia. It also complies with export requirements.

Usability and user convenience are the cornerstones of design.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
