Michelin upgrading Canada plant to support winter tire launch

Michelin North America Inc. plans to unveil a new line of winter tires for the North American market in 2020. The company will build those tires in Granton, Pictou County, Nova Scotia. That same plant will be the first on the continent to install an innovative semi-finished manufacturing process.

“New to North America, this innovative process allows us to produce semi-finished materials needed for tire-building right here at home,” says Jeff MacLean, president of Michelin North America (Canada) Inc. “These investments allow us to remain competitive in the marketplace, while continuing to build our future here in Nova Scotia.”

Combined, the new tire line and manufacturing process represent a $21 million investment in the plant, one of three Michelin production facilities in Nova Scotia.
