Sentury Tire, a global advanced-technology tire manufacturer of automotive and aircraft tires, selected SSOE Group to design its 1.4 million SF tire manufacturing facility in LaGrange, Georgia.
The new, $430 million tire manufacturing facility will serve as the North American headquarters and will be located on 400 acres, about 70 miles southwest of Atlanta in the LaGrange Callaway South Industrial Park. Bringing more than 1,000 jobs to Georgia, the plant will be fully operational in 2019 with the capacity to produce 12 million units per year. In line with Sentury’s other factories, the Georgia plant will feature smart technology, advanced test track and proving grounds, research and development, as well as warehouse and distribution operations. Sentury Tire built the first industry 4.0 smart factory in China, and an additional advanced manufacturing plant recently became operational in Thailand.
SSOE provided site selection assistance in close collaboration with Sentury Tire and the State of Georgia to secure the LaGrange location. Additionally, SSOE is providing complete design of the facility, permitting and owner’s representative services with an on-site team for the duration of construction.
