Romanian factory

producing safe driving with zero CO₂ emissions

The construction of our new passenger car tire factory started in 2023, and the factory will start commercial tire production in 2025, enabling European drivers to enjoy safe and sustainable driving in all conditions.

Welcome to follow our new journey!


Building The world's first zero COemission tire factory

We are committed to be the leaders in sustainability and caring for the shared world we all drive in. That is why the factory in Romania will be the world's first zero CO2 emission tire factory. The factory will use electricity that is produced 100 % with renewable sources and all steam generation will be done without fossil fuels. We are also focusing on energy efficient process and building solutions.

Oradea, the home of our new factory

Many factors contributed that Romania and the town of Oradea was selected as the final location of our new factory from over 40 options. We found a site large enough to serve a scalable manufacturing footprint with green energy sources available near the site. The area has a stable business environment and educated workforce and is close to our customer base via rail and highway and it serves as an important regional and European hub of many transport routes. It is also a strong automotive manufacturing hub in Europe.
