Michelin pauses production at Stoke-on-Trent tyre retreading plant
Michelin is pausing some of its retreaded tyre production for a week in October and over the Christmas period. According to the company, Michelin is “adjusting production within existing flexibility agreements due to volatile trading conditions”. However, there is no question of whether the action is related to a potential closure of the operation. Rather, company representatives were explicit: “there is no plan to close the Stoke plant”.
