The Toyo Tire North America Manufacturing, Inc., is expanding its current facility in White, Georgia, and creating 650 new jobs with a $371 million investment into the project over the next four year, announced Gov. Nathan Deal today.
“It is no surprise that Toyo Tire would choose to expand its facility in Georgia,” said Chris Carr, commissioner of GDEcD. “Our advanced workforce and No. 1 business climate create the ideal location for a fast-growing company to increase production and remain competitive.”
Toyo, headquartered in Japan, will be adding 700,000 square feet to its Bartow County plant. The expansion will continue to manufacture premium light truck and passenger car tires.
“We are proud to manufacture tires for North America, in North America,” said Jim Hawk president, Toyo Tire North America Manufacturing, Inc. “This plant, and the people who work in it, play an important role in supporting consumers and our dealers as the demand for our products continues to grow. This fourth expansion will help us answer that demand.”
