Tire International, Green Recycler and Value-Added Manufacturer, Investing $25 Million in South Carolina, Backshoring 150 Jobs
Tire International has established a third-generation recycling and manufacturing operation in Moncks Corner. and is currently in the process of upgrading its facility there to prepare for full operations. The company previously based its tire recycling and rubber manufacturing work in China, but now is bringing all of those operations to Berkeley County.
Tire International CFO and Director Marty Sergi said, "We are delighted to start up operations in the business-friendly environment of South Carolina and Berkeley County. This was the key in our decision to not only expand our operations but also to move our production operations from China to South Carolina. In addition, the existing infrastructure of the facility has enabled us to commence operations quicker than we could have done in any other location. The ability to have our raw material delivered by rail along with the proximity of the Charleston port will be critical to the success of our business."
At the plant, Tire International will recycle tires by breaking them down into raw materials and will produce finished consumer products including environmentally responsible and high quality commercial and residential flooring, artificial fields, playgrounds, landscaping materials and rubberized asphalt.
