Nokian Tyres Expands Tennessee Production Campus
Nokian Tyres has started construction on a new warehouse at its Dayton, Tennessee production campus that will hold as many as 600,000 tires, the company announced. The facility will be ready for use by mid-2024.
The company broke ground on the 350,000 square-foot warehouse in early March. It will sit adjacent to Nokian Tyres’ Dayton Factory, which is currently doubling production to manufacture as many as four million tires per year by 2024, the company said. The new storage space will join the company’s nine-warehouse network throughout the U.S. and Canada.
“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,” said Nokian Tyres Vice President of Passenger Car and LT Tires, Tommi Heinonen. “It’s another step forward in our quest to deliver safe, sustainable tires for North American drivers.”
