A strategic move has been announced by Nexen Tire America in which the company will relocate its US headquarters to Richfield, Ohio, to join its North American technical center.
The relocation decision was made shortly after the tire manufacturer identified several key benefits for its US customers. By moving to the central location, Nexen will be able to ensure that the priorities of its customers can continue to be met and it will also enable the company to strategize ways to increase the frequency of traveling to customers. In addition to this, Nexen will enhance its operational efficiency and provide on-going training and support for its dealers in the country.
Nexen’s 35,540ft2 Ohio technical center was opened in 2019 at a cost of US$5.2m. The company will continue to utilize its three US distribution facilities in California, Georgia and Ohio.
“Nexen Tire’s road to growth is running straight through the middle of the country into Richfield, Ohio, and we’re ecstatic to be reuniting with an already incredible and established team at our North American technical center,” commented Brian YoonSeok Han, CEO, Nexen Tire America.
“Our world-renowned technical center is best known for its unmatched tire testing and development and is now the official home of the Nexen Tire America team where we will continue to develop top-tier tires for our customers.”
