When you stack 200 million tires against each other end to end, you’d be able to cover about 96,000 miles. Cooper Tire’s manufacturing plant in Findlay, Ohio is celebrating a new milestone. It just produced its 200-millionth tire – a Cooper Discoverer AT3 LT.
The Findlay plant was set up in 1919 and was the first manufacturing facility owned by Cooper. Today, it has more than 900 associates occupying 1 million square feet of production space. The company is now part of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. The two manufacturers collaborate on their product portfolios, capabilities, and services. They command a strong lead in the global tire industry.
“We are grateful for our Findlay associates, past and present, who contributed to this significant production achievement,” said plant manager Mark Kreinbrink.
