Nokian Tyres has set the wheels in motion to hire staff at its new tire production plant in Southeast Tennessee, USA.

The Scandinavian tire company plans to take on between 40 and 50 production team members in the first quarter of 2019. In this first phase of hiring, it seeks experienced manufacturing workers to fill a variety of positions at every level of the organization.

The company is interested in candidates with varying levels of manufacturing experience, including skilled production workers, manufacturing operations professionals and maintenance technicians. It is especially interested in candidates with strong interpersonal skills, such as communication, teamwork, problem solving and leadership.

Opportunities are available in the following areas:

– Mixing;
– Tire production;
– Maintenance; and
– General factory overhead.

“The new team members will work in one of the most advanced tire manufacturing facilities in the world,” said operations director of the Dayton factory, Peter Chia.

“We are committed to giving our workers everything they need to succeed, including in-depth training, competitive wages and a positive workplace culture.”

Operations are scheduled to go online at the Dayton factory in 2020. By the end of 2019, the company aims to have hired and trained approximately 150 team members.

Eventually, the factory will employ around 400 people, which will produce four million tires per year when it reaches full capacity.

Once workers are on board, many will have the opportunity to train at Nokian Tyres’ factories in Europe. All staff will receive a chance to grow their careers.

“Nokian Tyres has a long history of making innovative products in a safe environment where its team members can thrive. We’re enthusiastic about being an employer of choice in Southeast Tennessee.”

Interested candidates are invited to apply here.
