Findlay, Ohio-Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. will add capacity this year for 500,000 performance tyres annually at its Findlay passenger and light truck tyre plant, investing $1.8 million in new equipment.
The expansion, which represents about a 5.5-percent increase, will create at least 30 jobs, Cooper said.
â€œThis expansion allows us to increase production of high-performance tyres and also add new equipment to enhance our quality and productivity,â€ said Bill Woeste, vice president of manufacturing. â€œWe expect this equipment to be in place and at full production levels by late summer.â€
