New plant to be located in Tennessee.
Nokian Tyres will be investing in a new factory, to be located in Dayton, Tennessee, USA. The annual capacity of the factory will be four million tires with an expansion potential in the future. The site will also house a distribution facility with a storage capacity of 600,000 tires.
“While the Dayton factory clearly enables us to serve our North American customers better and more efficiently, it also improves our production capabilities and customer service throughout our global operations,” says Petteri Walldén, Nokian Tyres’ Chairman of the Board of Directors.
The Dayton factory will concentrate on the production of passenger, SUV and light truck tires that are sold exclusively or primarily in the North American market. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2018 and the first tires are to be produced in 2020.
