That could ultimately mean the demise of the Salem Plant... because the company president went on to say.... "If Yokohama Tire fails to return to the black ink within 2 years, Yokohama Rubber, will be forced away from supporting the tire operation."
It continues... "If such a situation comes true, all employees are out of a job."
A Yokohama spokesperson confirmed the statements made by the Yokohama president.
