Cooper Tire & Rubber Company has announced a resumption of operations at its tire manufacturing plant in El Salto, Mexico.
Measures to protect the health and safety of employees, including social distancing, additional cleaning and disinfecting of facilities, restricted visitor access and other necessary steps will be in effect as employees return to work. Announcement of the plant’s temporary closure due to coronavirus impacts was made March 21.
Cooper plants in the United States, located in Findlay, Ohio; Clarksdale and Tupelo, Mississippi; and Texarkana, Arkansas, remain temporarily closed. The company expects these plants to remain temporarily closed for at least another two weeks.
Cooper plants in Europe also continue to be temporarily closed. The company’s plants in China, however, continue to operate.
