ANDERSON, S.C. (Dec. 12, 2013) — Michelin North America Inc.'s new OTR tire plant near Anderson was designed to be expanded multiple times, Chairman Pete Selleck said Dec. 12.
The US10 plant, built in record time of 17 months, was designed based on Michelin's Lexington, S.C., plant, which has been expanded five times, Mr. Selleck said. The new plant covers 800,000 square feet, including materials preparation, tire building, curing, inspection and warehousing/shipping sections.
The executive declined to say how quickly the tire maker might expand it, saying it would depend on demand.
