Driven to Harmony
Tuff Torq Corporation is based in Morristown, Tennessee and handles all manufacturing functions for products within U.S. facilities. We are committed to being an American made product and, thus, we are driven to ensure our product quality reflects this heritage. Established in 1989 by Kanzaki Kokyukoki Mfg. Co. Ltd of Amagasaki, Japan, Tuff Torq Corporation was created to be a domestic manufacturing base for drive systems for the lawn and gardening industries.
Tuff Torq Corporation is part of the Yanmar Global family of companies and draws upon their decades of experience to develop the premium product lines to best support our customers. Through the philosophy of Yawaragi and the drive of our YWK efforts, we are continuing to improve our process, quality and product performance.
The Spirit of “Yawaragi”
The spirit of “Yawaragi” and our Japanese heritage drive our commitment and dedication to creating a better world by achieving harmony with the demands of the marketplace. Through an active exchange of constructive opinions, mutual wisdom and organic cooperation, Tuff Torq works in harmony with our business partners to assure growth and prosperity for all.
Our drive for harmony also extends to our manufacturing process. We have developed a unique process of manufacturing that balances systems’ automation and monitoring with the critical oversight of experienced human professionals. We have years of experience and innovation that helps us understand the intricacies of designing and manufacturing quality hydrostatic drive systems. Plus, the experiences of our people are crucial to the quality of our products.
