The Yokohama Pneumatic Rubber Fender was developed in 1958 based on a rubber company’s technology for automobile tyres and rubber aircraft fuel tanks. Progress in the development of such floating pneumatic rubber fenders is closely related to the progress and development of ship technology, and has to continuously cope with progressively larger oil tankers such as VLCC’s, ULCC’s, large gas carriers, bulk carriers and floating structures. Floating pneumatic fenders are used world wide for ship-to-ship (STS) transfer operations, terminals and for all kinds of ships. Since its creation until today, more than 45,000 fenders have been supplied worldwide both for ship-to-ship and ship-to-dock operations serving our valuable customers. These fenders play a critical role in the safe operation of ship berthing and mooring.
