Manufacturing: Retreading in Stoke-on-Trent
At the Stoke-on-Trent factory we retread truck tyres allowing hauliers to get significant extra mileage from their tyres for relatively little extra cost. This also benefits the environment as it reduces the amount of tyre casings that have to be scrapped. These products are branded as Remix and Encore.
Economic development: Michelin Development
Michelin has always been involved in supporting local communities, both socially through participation in local initiatives and in the form of business mentoring and low-coast business loans through Michelin Development. Michelin Development helps local businesses grow and it creates high-quality, sustainable jobs.
Working in conjunction with regional development agencies, local government and business support agencies in Ballymena and Stoke-on-Trent, Michelin Development also aims to stimulate employment creation by attracting inward investment.
