Tuff Torq Corporation, which is part of the Yanmar Group, has celebrated a major milestone in its history with the grand opening of the Test Engineering Center (T-TEC) in Morristown (Tennessee). The 17,000 square foot facility allows for significant expansion of the company’s testing capabilities and supports continued growth of the company. 

Tuff Torq Corporation was established in 1989, with the Test Department formed in 1995. Beginning with only three employees and three pieces of equipment, the department has expanded significantly in the past 27 years, and now boasts over thirty employees, fifteen test stands, two test tracks, and multiple other pieces of equipment. The new dedicated testing facility will further enhance Tuff Torq’s testing capabilities towards improving quality and reliability and increasing customer value. 

A ceremony was held to commemorate the opening of the facility, and was attended by the management and employees, and representatives of the local community.

Tuff Torq’s sales and product portfolio have grown to the point where more testing and new types of testing are needed,” said Yoshimune Yamaoka, Chairman of Tuff Torq Corporation. “It is thanks to your continued efforts that Tuff Torq has succeeded and faces a secure future.”

Keith Andrews, one of the original test department members, was on hand to join in the opening of the center and thanked community leaders and team members for their efforts in leading this project. He said: “With this new state of the art facility, Tuff Torq will continue to produce and develop new industry leading products with world-class leading performance, quality, and reliability.”

Another unique feature of the new building is its Yanmar energy system. The system allows for lower operating costs and helps to achieve the goal of reducing the carbon footprint and providing sustainable solutions to customers. Tuff Torq is a subsidiary of Kanzaki  Kokyukoki Corporation, which is part of the Yanmar group.
