Nexen Tire America, a manufacturer of high-performance, passenger, SUV/light truck and winter tires, has relocated its U.S.-based headquarters to Richfield, Ohio, the company announced, joining its North American technical center located at 4014 Wheatley Road. The $5.2 million 35,540-sq.-ft. facility opened in 2019 and is one of three technical centers Nexen Tire operates worldwide.
The move comes shortly after Nexen Tire identified several key benefits for its customers in the U.S. After considering all points, relocating its headquarters to a central location ensures top priorities for its customers continue to be met, the company said, and allows Nexen Tire to increase frequency of traveling to customers, enhance operating efficiency and continue to provide on-going training and support to its network of dealers nationwide.
“Nexen Tire’s road to growth is running straight through the middle of the country into Richfield, Ohio, and we’re ecstatic to be reuniting with an already incredible and established team at our North American technical center,” said Brian YoonSeok Han, CEO of Nexen Tire America. “Our world-renowned technical center is best known for its unmatched tire testing and development and is now the official home of the Nexen Tire America team where we will continue to develop top-tier tires for our customers.”
Nexen Tire will continue to utilize its three U.S. distribution facilities located in California, Georgia and Ohio, the company said.
