Toyo Tire North America Manufacturing broke ground for a 700,000-square-foot addition to its 2 million-square-foot tire manufacturing plant in White, GA. The company plans to expand its warehouse portion of the facility by 323,000-square-feet to accommodate increasing demand for Toyo and Nitto brand tires.
Toyo Tire & Rubber Co. of Osaka, Japan, is investing $371 million in the company’s expansion over the next four years. This investment will result in the creation of 650 new jobs.
The plant’s facility first broke ground in 2004. Since then, it has experienced three expansion projects, which has doubled the size of the facility.
