New Plant Manager for Goodyear in Fayetteville
Goodyear has appointed a new plant manager at its Fayetteville, North Carolina. Timothy Frosell began in his job in early October and takes control at a time when major investment plans for modernising that facility are underway.
Since joining Goodyear in 1984 Frosell has worked at a number of the company’s US sites, and has previously served as plant manager Kingman, Arizona, Buffalo, New York and Social Circle, Georgia. Frosell replaces Gary Cushman, who is taking on the position of strategic manufacturing engineering manager at Goodyear’s headquarters in Akron, Ohio,
“We are extremely pleased that Tim has accepted the challenge of leading the Fayetteville plant through a very exciting period of growth and modernisation,” said Chris Werner, Goodyear’s vice president of manufacturing for the North American Tire unit, in a statement. “Tim is familiar with the plant, the employees and the community, and his experience will be instrumental in positioning the Fayetteville plant for even greater success.”
The 38 year old Fayetteville factory, workplace for some 2,700 people, will shortly undergo equipment retooling so that it can remain commercially viable through the manufacture of larger, higher margin tyres.
