Goodyear tire plant in San Luis Potosi is officially operational

A discreet ceremony took place earlier this week at the World Trade Center II industrial park in San Luis Potosi to mark the official opening of the new Goodyear tire plant, the company’s first new factory in the Americas in 25 years. 

The 1 million-plus-square-feet facility represents a US$ 550 million investment and is expected to manufacture six million tires a year, including the Goodyear Eagle F1 and the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar.

Mexico’s Secretary of Economy Ildefonso Guajardo, Governor Juan Manuel Carreras and Goodyear Latin America president Marcelo Toscani were among government and company officials who attended the ceremony.
