Nokian Tyres has opened its first North American production factory in Dayton, Tennessee. The 830,000-square-foot complex is one of the most advanced tyre production facilities in the industry, claims the company. The factory will produce four million tyres per year at the factory once it reaches full capacity. Currently, it employs 400 workers. Now, the trial production is happening will be ready to make tyres for commercial use in early 2020. Nokian Tyres has set a goal to double its North American sales in five years, said a press statement.

“The grand opening of the Dayton Factory is a key milestone in our growth journey,” said Nokian Tyres President and CEO Hille Korhonen. “Our hard-working multinational team has brought our company’s vision to life through relentless teamwork, and we’re eager to celebrate their accomplishment. The North American factory provides a premium relationship with our customers by making safe, sustainable products that are tailored to the needs of North American consumers.”

At the Dayton factory, the company aims to fill expanding North American demand and seize on opportunities in the all-season and all-weather markets. Nokian Tyres will maintain strict sustainability standards at the factory to minimize waste and emissions. Solar panels will be installed in the parking lot, and the company will recycle excess materials that result from production. The solar array in the parking lot will generate three megawatts of electricity to be utilised at the facility, the company said.
