Pirelli to invest another $12 million in Georgia plant

Posted on November 11, 2010

Pirelli Tire North America (PTNA) is adding a compound mixing facility to its Rome, Ga., facility.

The $12 million investment will support the Pirelli Group's strategic growth plan for the North American market and help PTNA sustain its market gains and the 30% sales increase realized over the past three years, the company says.

"I am very proud of Pirelli's commitment to growing our Rome-based MIRS (Modular Integrated Robotized System) manufacturing facility," says Mauro Pessi, PTNA's chairman and CEO. "The addition of the new mixing room facility demonstrates our dedication to Pirelli's strategic growth in the North American market and support's Pirelli's commitment of investing in the economic development of the city of Rome and the state of Georgia.

"We have received excellent support from local, state and regional governments and organizations to make this project happen. We also look forward to continuing our relationships with local colleges and the Georgia QuickStart program that will help us realize this growth."
