Improvement at Tonawanda Plant Leads to Increased Output, Investment & Jobs

blog header

We’re inspired by this article in Buffalo Business First about Sumitomo Rubber USA’s plant in Tonawanda, which increased its output by 30% last year. This improvement will result in $122 million of investment by Sumitomo’s parent company in new production equipment, the addition of 30-60 new jobs and nearly doubled sales volume in the years to come. Actions and investments to “make sure we’re competitive in the tire marketplace” and to take a plant “that’s becoming good to make it a great plant” set an example for all manufacturers.
