Cooper Tire announced that its manufacturing plants in the United States and Mexico will remain closed for at least another two weeks to protect the health and safety of its employees against coronavirus.
The temporary plant closures were announced March 21, and include facilities in Findlay, Ohio; Clarksdale and Tupelo, Mississippi; Texarkana, Arkansas and El Salto, Mexico.
Cooper plants in Europe continue to be temporarily closed. Its plants in China reopened several weeks ago and have continued to ramp up production and remain in operation.
The company continues to monitor supply chain and product inventory levels, and believes it has sufficient supply of product. Cooper’s distribution centers in the U.S. have continued to operate and flow product to customers.
