Tennessee plant is first in America for Hankook.
Hankook Tire held the grand opening ceremony for its first manufacturing facility in the U.S. The company says that the development of the Tennessee Plant is integral to Hankook’s strategic vision of becoming a top-tier tire brand.
The Tennessee Plant is Hankook’s eighth plant worldwide, and will initially produce 5.5 million units annually. When the second phase of development is complete, it will double its production capacity to 11 million units annually.
The Tennessee Plant will produce Passenger Car Radial (PCR) and Light Truck Radial (LTR) tires from Hankook’s extensive North American lineup, including the KINERGY PT, a premium touring all-season tire and Hankook’s first tire made in the U.S.
