Tire company to open plant in Marshfield
MARSHFIELD (AP) - An Ohio-based tire manufacturer plans to open a new assembly plant in southwest Missouri.
The Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce announced Thursday that the $1.5 million Americana Tire and Wheel assembly plant will bring 20 new jobs to Marshfield.
The Springfield News-Leader reports Americana serves trailer manufacturers across North America. It produces trailer tire and wheel assemblies, as well as Load Star and Kenda Karrier Radial tires. The plant is expected to be fully operational this month.
The Marshfield facility will join Americana facilities in Elkhart, Indiana; York, Pennsylvania, and Blackshear, Georgia.
