Joint Meeting with ASME, CRMA and Chattanooga Area Chamber's International Business Council
Nokian Tyres broke ground on its $360 million manufacturing facility in Dayton, Tennessee in 2017 marking the start of the building work of their third factory. The new plant serves customers across the United States and Canada, concentrating on the production of North American-specific car and light truck all-season tires.
Nokian Tyres also has production plants in Finland and Russia. The company has headquarters in Nokia, Finland. With production started in 2020, the newest plant had release capacity from other factories to serve other growth markets, and now more critical due to stopped production at its Russian plant.
David Korda, Civil Engineer, who was the construction project lead, now plant manager, and Blake Markham, Director of Human Resource will lead our tour and share the plant operation updates with us.
