Stamford Bridge, London – The Yokohama Rubber Company (YRC) awarded a total of 41 dealers representing the 15 countries all over Asia, Europe and Middle East in a ceremony held at The Chelsea Football Club Stadium, Stamford Bridge London last June 9, 2017. YRC recognizes the sales growth of these dealers for the past three years as well as their dedication to the expansion of the Yokohama Club Network (YCN).
