Cooper Tire & Rubber Investing $9M in Tupelo, Mississippi
"To continue to add jobs and position our self apart from a competitive standpoint, it's just a great feeling," said plant manager Patrick Jodon.
The investment will go towards new equipment that will increase the facility's efficiency. Cooper already has 1,300 employees in Tupelo.
The company considered shuttering its Tupelo plant in 2008 as part of a consolidation effort, but it decided to keep it open and has since invested in two expansions there, including this most recent announcement.
