Titan expanding at Union City

Filed under: Tires — Notch @ 9:25 am

Titan Tire plans to create 300 jobs by year’s end at its Union City, Tenn., plant at the location of the former Goodyear Tire & Rubber facility.

Titan Tire chairman Bill Campbell told the Union City Daily Messenger that the company will use the local plant to produce and redistribute materials to other Titan Tire plants, including “utilizing a process that squeezes rubber onto fabric (nylon and polyester) and blends rubber and steel strands that will be used as tire belts for Titan Tire.”

Titan Tire purchased the Goodyear plant for $9 million last September after it shut down earlier in the year.
