Roughly 100 employees will be affected by the closure. All of the employees were offered positions at Michelin’s other nearby factories, the tiremaker said.
A spokesperson told Tire Review: “the plant and its equipment will be maintained so that operations can restart in a timely manner when market conditions improve and customer demand increases.”
Earthmover tires will still be produced at other Michelin factories, including one in Lexington, South Carolina.
