Nokian's Tennessee Plant Moves to 24/7 Production
Nokian Tyres plc is now manufacturing tires around the clock at its plant in Dayton, Tenn. The company moved to 24/7 production at the facility on July 12.
The addition of a fourth shift at the plant "is in line with Nokian's long-term ramp-up plans" at the facility, where it intends to produce as many as four million tires annually, once full capacity has been reached.
The expansion "allows us to keep pace with production goals that will help us grow our presence in North America," says David Korda, the Dayton plant's operations director.
