North American Factory

Dayton, Tennessee, USA

We built our $360 million manufacturing facility in Dayton, Tennessee, USA to serve customers across the United States and Canada. Our first North American tire factory produces car and light truck all season tires and all weather tires tailored to meet the demands of North American drivers, while doubling down on our commitment to safe, sustainable products and processes. We are continuing to expand our North American tire manufacturing capacity, including increased volume of our most popular all season and all weather tires for the North American market.

Our North American tire factory was designed on the cutting edge of sustainable innovation. The Dayton Factory is the first tire factory in the world to earn LEED v4 Silver certification - a testament to its low emissions and energy efficiency - and its administration building earned LEED v4 Gold certification in 2021. But state-of-the-art facilities are not the only way we strive to be sustainable. Our tires have low rolling resistance and are free of harmful high-aromatic oils.
