About the plant:
In October of 2015, Yokohama Tire Manufacturing Mississippi (YTMM) today announced the opening of its new $300 million commercial truck tire facility in West Point, Mississippi. Just a little over 24 months after breaking ground on the site, YTMM commemorated the occasion with more than three hundred dignitaries and guests at the modern, one-million-square-foot facility.
The initial phase of the project includes a 931,000-square-foot facility on a 500-acre site. Yokohama will make an initial capital investment of $300 million and anticipates creating 500 jobs as part of the first phase – and up to 2,000 jobs by the time all phases are complete.
In May of 2013, Yokohama Tire Corporation announced that it had selected West Point, Mississippi, as the location of its new U.S. commercial truck tire manufacturing plant, which is set to open in October 2015 and manufacture one million commercial tires annually.
