Nokian Tyres opened the Dayton factory in 2019 and is growing production there, with full capacity of approximately four million tires per year expected once ramp-up is complete. Workforce at the factory has more than doubled in 2021, and Nokian Tyres continues to seek qualified workers to fill its growing number of positions, the company says.

More than 300 employees, 70% of whom live within a 20-mile radius of the factory, work in the highly automated facility. Nokian says it uses latest-generation technology and rigorous quality and safety standards to craft tires at the factory, which has earned ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification for its quality control and environmental practices, respectively.
