Goodyear adds 25% of production capacity in Slovenia

Goodyear Slovenia started the production of 20-inch replacement tires for passenger vehicles. This was made possible by installing new machines at the company’s factory in Kranj as part of a large-scale expansion investment, which now allows for 25% more production capacity.

“The advanced machines that we installed as part of the expansion project allow us to produce larger and more demanding tires that must provide drivers with the expected performance. They are in demand by buyers of larger and luxury cars, as well as electric and sport utility vehicles”, said production director Matjaz Mali.

The new machines have reduced the intensity of physical work, but the necessary level of technical knowledge that employees need to manage advanced technologies has increased, added the copmany in the press release.
