$910 Million Capital Investment
Toyo Tire North America, the U.S. subsidiary of the Japanese tire company, continues to grow in Bartow County. In 2004, the Japanese tire company announced it would build a new plant, the company's first U.S. production operation. The 900,000-square-foot plant has been in operation since 2006, and includes a manufacturing facility and warehouse. The company expanded by another 820,000 square feet in 2008, growing its workforce to 700 people. Toyo announced a further 200-job expansion in 2010, and in July 2011 announced a third expansion, which could mean almost 1,400 new jobs since the 2004 announcement.
Headquartered in Cypress, California, Toyo Tire USA Corp. manufactures and distributes a complete line of tires for high performance cars, luxury vehicles, light trucks and SUVs as well as tires for commercial trucks, buses and off-road and construction applications.
