Nokian Breaks Ground on New Warehouse

March 22, 2023

Construction on Nokian Tyres' new distribution center in Dayton, Tenn., has started.

When it opens next year, the warehouse will span 350,000 square feet and hold up to 600,000 tires.

The distribution center will sit adjacent to Nokian's consumer tire plant in Dayton.

Nokian is doubling the plant's output and says the factory will be able to manufacture as many as four million tires per year by 2024.

The company's new distribution center will join its nine-warehouse network throughout the United States and Canada "and will serve a growing volume of customers in the Sun Belt," according to Nokian officials.

"As Nokian Tyres grows in southeast Tennessee and throughout North America, this storage warehouse will help us manage the increased volume of tires flowing to our customers," notes Tommi Heinonen, Nokian's vice president of passenger car and LT tires.
