Bridgestone Americas Inc. is investing $60 million in its Bandag tread rubber manufacturing plant in Abilene, Texas. The infusion will increase the plant's output by 16% and will include a 50,000-square-foot expansion.

The investment - which includes construction of new mixing operations - is due to "growing demand for the company's tread rubber products, driven by the rapid growth of its retread business," according to Bridgestone officials.

The Abilene plant marked its 50th year in operation in 2021.

It currently spans 200,000 square feet.
