The plant in Joliette produces tires for cars and light trucks. The plant employs 1,300 people and makes 17,000 tires per day. In 2016, the company embarked on a $300 million, 5-year expansion plan that will continue to grow capacity and employment at the plant.

We have reached out to the company to try to find out which type of tires are produced at the plant. In the meantime, tires manufactured at this plant should have DOT 9B, DOT VN, or DOT XY molded into the sidewall.
