Nokian Tyres manufactures passenger car tires in its factories in Nokia, Finland and in Dayton, US. In 2023, we broke ground for a factory in Oradea, Romania. The commercial production is scheduled to start in Romania in 2025. In addition to own production, we also use contract manufacturing for selected Nokian Tyres’ passenger car tires.

All heavy tires are manufactured at the Nokia factory except for tires for trucks and buses, which are designed in Finland and produced by off-take contract manufacturers in the EU.

NOKIA factory


The Nokia factory plays an important role not only in the manufacturing of tires, but also in product development. It is a key location for our centralized product development, prototyping and test runs. In 2022, we bought three hectares of land in Nokia to secure future development opportunities at the Nokia factory.

Dayton factory


Our Dayton factory in the US started commercial tire production in 2020, after which we have gradually increased production capacity. The Dayton factory is where we manufacture North American-specific car and light truck all-season and all-weather tires. The Dayton factory has a significant role in our North American growth plan.

Oradea factory

The building work for the Oradea factory started in early 2023. When finished in 2025, the factory will be the world’s first zero CO2 emission tire factory. Its annual capacity will be 6 million tires and it will offer employment for approximately 500 people.
