Toyo Tires announced it will be temporarily suspending operations at its tire manufacturing plant in White, Georgia due to the global impact of COVID-19 on markets.
Phase-down of production has already begun and will be completed over the next few days. Toyo Tire anticipates the plant to resume production on April 19, 2020.
To ensure the health and safety of our employees at each of our locations, Toyo Tires previously implemented preventative measures recommended by the CDC, including telecommuting, social distancing, and routine cleaning and sanitizing of facilities and equipment.
“Toyo Tire’s distribution centers are fully stocked and will remain open to service our customers. We also continue to receive tires from our overseas manufacturing facilities. We will closely monitor this situation and take such measures as are appropriate.”
