Finland-Based Nokian Tyres Expands Dayton, Tennessee, Operations Complex

Nokian Tyres, a Finland-based company that develops, manufactures and distributes its premium tires worldwide, will expand operations at its facility in Dayton, Tennessee. The $174.1 million project is expected to create 75 jobs in Rhea County.
The 600,000-square-foot warehouse will double the company’s tire production capabilities, strengthening its nine-warehouse network across the U.S. and Canada by reaching full production capacity of up to four million tires per year by 2024, according to state officials.
“As demand for our tires grows in the U.S. and Canada, our expanded Dayton Factory will supply customers with a rising number of safe, sustainable all-season and all-weather products. We are happy to see the factory provide more jobs for North American workers and more tires for North American drivers,” Nokian Tyres Vice President of Sales Tommi Heinonen said.
Founded in Finland, Nokian Tyres develops, manufactures and distributes its premium tires worldwide with operations in Europe, North America and Asia. Since establishing a presence in Rhea County three years ago, Nokian Tyres will have invested more than $400 million and created 475 new jobs in Tennessee once the current expansion is complete.
“Nokian Tyres has been a valued partner to the State of Tennessee since 2019, and today’s announcement is proof that our state’s workforce and business-friendly climate are clear advantages when recruiting global companies to Tennessee. We believe Dayton and Rhea County will continue to be the ideal location for this company’s growth and future success,” TNECD Commissioner Stuart McWhorter noted.
