Project Details


Fueled by the demand for increased manufacturing capacity, Sumitomo will be constructing a 35,000 sq. ft. expansion to its existing manufacturing operations in the Town of Tonawanda.  The expanded production capability will increase tire production from 5,000 tires per day to 10,000 per day by the year 2019.


The project lays the foundation for future growth in the North American market and will allow Sumitomo to strive to be competitive and maintain and expand operations at the Tonawanda plant.


This 35,000 sq. ft. expansion represents phase one of a two phase project.
