Michelin restarts production of OTR tires at Starr, SC plant

Filed under: Tires — Notch @ 4:00 pm

The Anderson Observer reports that Michelin is restarting production of large OTR tires at its facility in Starr, South Carolina. The company held an event at the plant today, Thursday, August 30, to officially reopen manufacturing. The factory began production in January 2014 but production was idled in 2015 due to a downturn in global demand for large OTR and mining tires. The factory produces Michelin’s largest tires, including “the Earthmover,” which can stand up to 13 feet tall and weigh up to 5.5 tons. Roughly 80% of plant output is exported.
