Hankook says production on schedule at Clarksville plant

Hankook Tire America Corp. said tire production continues to ramp up on schedule at its new $580 million plant in Clarksville, Tennessee. The South Korean tire maker said commercial tire production will commence later this year, as planned.

“We are currently ramping up tire production at the facility as we hire and train employees,” the tire maker said in a statement. “While the plant is not producing tires for commercial distribution at this time, the plant is operational, and our production ramp-up is tracking with the updated timeline.”

The Tennessee plant is being constructed in four phases. When all four phases are complete, the plant will have the capability of producing 22 million tires a year.
